The Great British Spring Clean

We’re supporting this year’s Keep Britain Tidy campaign, The Great British Spring Clean.

Please note that in light of government advice to restrict the spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus), this year’s Great British Spring Clean has been postponed and will now take place between 11 and 27 September 2020.

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 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
