Serving the people of Barlborough

Broken Glass

The Parish Council is aware that there is an ongoing problem with broken glass bottles in the Country Park play area and is grateful to the public for making the Clerk aware of any problem.

As the Park has a public footpath running through it the Parish Council cannot close the Park totally at night.

The Parish Council does not employ a litter picker and the Clerk is reliant on the kindness of individuals to clear the mess. There are bins available for empty bottles, unfortunately, these are not used.

The bins are emptied Monday and Friday each week and the operatives from Bolsover District Council will also collect any litter left on the ground.

If you notice a problem please email the Clerk at or leave a message via the Parish Council Facebook page
