Hundreds of volunteers will be taking to the banks of the River Dee and surrounding areas over the next week.
The Big Dee Day 2018 annual clean-up begins today, on Friday 14th September.
The event, now in its twelfth year will see Flintshire County Council and the neighbouring councils of Cheshire West and Chester, Denbighshire, Wrexham and Shropshire and Natural Resources Wales working with volunteers from community groups, conservation groups and businesses from across the region to clear the river of marine litter, spruce up the areas along its banks and plant bulbs and meadow plants.
Councillor Carolyn Thomas, Cabinet Member for Streetscene and Countryside, said:
"Once again the Big Dee Day sees so many people and businesses wanting to take part and help protect our local countryside. As ever, the volunteers taking part in this annual clean-up of the River Dee’s fantastic marine environment play a huge part in helping to ensure our coastline is kept clean for both visitors and wildlife.
