The Great British Spring Clean – Lower Valley Needs You!

Posted on Updated on

 The Great British Spring Clean is on its way from Friday 20th March to Monday 13th April 2020 across the UK. Calderdale Council and Keep Britain Tidy are calling on you, our #LitterHeroes, to take action.

This year Calderdale Council want to support as many local groups and individuals as possible. We hope that collecting a record amount of litter will improve the environment on your doorstep by joining the country’s biggest mass-participation environmental campaign.

We couldn’t do The Great British Spring Clean without people like you committing to taking part – you are helping to make a real difference in your local community by getting people to think about the amount of litter in our environment. Once someone has been on a litter pick, it’s very hard for them to not notice litter everywhere they go; we want litter picking to be the norm!

The Great British Spring Clean is aiming to inspire over half a million people to join forces across the country to collect and safely dispose of litter from our streets, parks and beaches, recycling as much as possible.

It doesn’t matter if this is your first time hosting a litter pick or your one hundredth, we want #LitterHeroes across the country to stand together to declare that litter is unacceptable.

If you would like to host or attend a Clean-Up then please get in touch and Calderdale can provide Equipment, Bags (from Keep Britain Tidy) and collect all litter after the event.

Clean-ups will take place from 20 March – 13 April 2020 and we already have some events in the diary so please get in touch ASAP to get booked in.
