Maritime Transport vows to clean up Felixstowe

[ April 22, 2021   //   ]

Intermodal operator Maritime Transport has joined forces with community volunteer group, Litter-Free Felixstowe (LFF), as part of a national campaign to clean up roads and lay-bys.

‘Litter-Free Roads & Lay-bys’ went live on Earth Day, 22 April, and aims to unite members of the transport and logistics community to tackle the dramatic rise in roadside litter which has a devastating impact on wildlife and the environment.

Maritime, alongside various other hauliers and three major UK ports who have signed the litter-free pledge, will be organising regular litter picks across its 40+ depots spanning the UK and surrounding areas which drivers and staff will be invited to take part in.

Debbie Bartlett, founder of LFF, launched the group in 2018, which now has more than 1,000 members and volunteers of all ages who meet regularly to pick litter in Felixstowe, and educate people about the issue.
