The Great British Spring Clean - March 2019
The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.
Each year in March Keep Britain Tidy inspires thousands of people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us.
Join the growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.
Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep.
How we can help with your litter picking events
If you, your parish council, school or local community group would like to organise a voluntary litter picking event in your area, we can support you by providing bags for the collection of litter and will collect these after the event.
Please call us on 01636 650000, if you would like bags and need to arrange a collection.
We recommend the use of gloves and litter-pickers where possible.
Once you have finished please leave the bags of litter at the pre-arranged collection point and we will come to collect and dispose of it.
Duke of Edinburgh Volunteering
If you are a parent manager of a local Duke of Edinburgh team and would like to consider litter picking for your group please get in touch.
Our waste management team will act as the assessor for your volunteer group and we can supply black bags and pick up the collected rubbish.
