Great British Spring Clean and Great Big School Clean
We are again encouraging town and parish councils to organise community litter picks as part of the Great British Spring Clean 2019, which this year lasts for a month and takes place between 22nd March and 23rd April. Alongside this Keep Britain Tidy are also appealing to schools to get involved in litter picking as part of the Great Big School Clean.
This year there is an emphasis to collect and safely dispose of single-use plastic, recycling as much as possible.
In previous years Central Bedfordshire Council has distributed hundreds of gloves, litter pickers, high viz. jackets and bags to town and parish councils to enable community litter picking activities all year round. We have a limited supply of gloves and pickers which we will aim to distribute to parishes that have not had any equipment previously. We will supply bags and will also co-ordinate the collection of collected waste with Biffa, our contractor.
We will be in touch again soon with more information and guidance.
In the meantime if you are planning a litter pick please sign up to register your event on the Keep Britain Tidy website.
