The Great British Spring Clean

 

Calling all local community groups and community minded individuals! The Keep Britain Tidy group are launching their annual national campaign, the 'Great British Spring Clean', with the aim of bringing together people to help clear litter to improve their local environment.

The official dates of the 'Great British Spring Clean' are March 3rd to March 5th, although events could still take place after this weekend.

If you wish to organise your own clean up, please register on the main campaign website at http://www.greatbritishspringclean.org.uk/home/2684

The Joint Waste Team can provide support for groups volunteering in the South Bucks district. We can loan litter pickers, provide rubbish sacks and provide a collection of the waste picked. Please note that only bagged waste will be collected at a pre-agreed location. We are unable to collect bulky materials.

Volunteers can request support using our word icon online form [102kb]

Organisers are responsible for conducting risk assessments as part of the event preparation. We would not encourage volunteers to work within close proximity of main roads for their own safety. More information can be found on the campaign website http://www.greatbritishspringclean.org.uk/home/2684

Equipment loaned must be collected from and returned to either the Chiltern District Council Office or the South Bucks District Council Office.

Please email your completed form to recycling@southbucks.gov.uk
