Nottinghamshire country park to receive special bins

A country park in Nottinghamshire is to receive special bins next week in a bid to keep the green space attractive to visitors.

Rushcliffe Country Park will get the bins - with separate compartments for rubbish and recycling - as part of a drive to ensure the area becomes even cleaner and greener.

Rushcliffe was one of only 12 district councils in the country to be given a top five-star rating at the Clean Britain Awards held last week.

Judges from the British Cleaning Council, which runs the award, secretly toured the borough in October.

A representative said: "It was very pleasing driving around Rushcliffe going from village to village.
"The whole area was generally clean, there was a genuine sense of pride coming from this area."

The area of Chiswick Park, in west London, was also awarded a five-star rating.
