The Great British Spring Clean

We support Keep Britain Tidy's campaign, The Great British Spring Clean.

The Great British Spring Clean is usually held in March each year, but you can volunteer to help clean up litter in your neighbourhood all year round.

We invite local residents, businesses, schools and community groups to become ‘litter heroes’ by getting involved in community litter picks and ‘tidy ups’ in wards across the city.

We'll continue to lend our support to anyone wanting to be involved, including:

  • collecting waste in bags printed with ‘V’ (for volunteer) from pre-planned 'Spring Clean' events
  • providing equipment and practical advice to help make jobs quicker and easier
