We've been asked on numerous occasions to provide an area for people to share documents.

Please feel feel to use this area to upload relevent images and pdf documents that others may use.

If you wish to upload any other type of document (a Microsoft Word document for example) please email it to admin@cleanitup.co.uk where it will be converted to pdf for others to use.
