Great Bristol Spring Clean

Local communities are being invited to take part in the Great Bristol Spring Clean which runs for a week from 2-11 March.

Bristol Waste Company and Bristol City Council will be supporting groups to get involved in the campaign – which is part of a national weekend of litter picks organised by Keep Britain Tidy.

The event is to encourage Bristol residents to help make their communities “cleaner, greener and more welcoming places”. People are being asked to spend just an hour or two picking up litter, which can then be left in a designated place for Bristol Waste to collect it.

The week also supports the Mayor’s Bristol Clean Streets campaign to make the city measurably cleaner by 2020.

Bristol Mayor, Marvin Rees, said: “…The Spring Clean is a fantastic chance to get involved with your community, and help tackle the issues of littering and dirty streets across the city.

“We all want Bristol to be a place we can be proud of, and by coming together to spend just a few hours tidying up your communities, we can make our city a more pleasant place for both residents and visitors.”

Bristol Waste Company has hundreds of litter picking kits to loan out. Anyone who is interested in organising a litter pick or would like to join a local group can call 0117 304 9022, or email hello@bristolwastecompany.co.uk.
