The Great British Spring Clean

Published: 03 January 2017

After the popularity of Clean for the Queen last year, where 250,000 people helped pick up tonnes of litter and cleaned up their local areas, organisations such as Keep Britain The Great British Spring Clean LogoTidy, Cleanup UK and Highways England have come together to try to achieve even more. This year the Great British Spring Clean movement will be taking place on the weekend of March 3-5, 2017.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in taking part, please visit the Great British Spring Clean website where you can find out more and register an event. You can also search for existing events in your area and download posters and resources.

If you would like to run a ‘tidy-up’ event for the Great British Spring Clean, or at any time of year, WSCC has kits we can loan to you to help. These contain litter pickers, bin-bag hoops, anti-bacterial hand wipes, gloves, some handy hints and a risk assessment template.

Arun District Council is also offering to loan equipment, including hi-vis tabards, and are offering free collection of any litter picked up at the end of your event.
You can find out more about their offer here.
