Great British Spring Clean

ATCM is proud to be supporting The Great British Spring Clean

Keep Britain Tidy is running its biggest-ever litter campaign, the Great British Spring Clean, to encourage half a million people to get out there and make sure where they live, work and shop is a clean appealing place they can be proud of. But, Keep Britain Tidy needs your support to make this happen.

The Spring Clean, which will take place from March 3-5, is being backed by charities such as the RSPCA and the Marine Conservation Society, central Government and organisations including Highways England and businesses including McDonald’s, Greggs,  Lidl, Costa, Wrigleys and Coca Cola. 

It builds on the success of 2016’s national clean-up, which saw 250,000 people get stuck in to clean up their communities, including hundreds of school children, thousands of community groups and over 250 local authorities across the country, who between them collected more than 300,000 bags of rubbish.

Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “The Great British Spring Clean is about getting all those people who care about their environment to take action. We know that more than 50% of people are concerned about the appearance of their local area and so we want them to feel that they can do something about it and they are not alone in caring.

“If 500,000 people help us pick litter for just two hours each that means that our country will benefit from one million hours of clean-up care.”

We are encouraging everyone to get involved, from town centre management organisations, schools and community groups to businesses and local councils. Over 200 councils are already signed up to take part (see the list), with more getting involved every day.  Register your organisation and organise or take part in a clean-up to show your support for the campaign.
