The country’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, will be supported in March by Watford Borough Council and its recycling and waste partner Veolia for this year’s Great British Spring Clean.
The clean-up will run from March 20 to April 13 and its aim is to bring people from across the country together to clear up the littler that blights towns, villages, the countryside and parks.
Last year, more than half a million ‘Litter Heroes’ collected more than 900,000 bags of rubbish.
Over 200 Watford residents, school children, councillors and businesses got together in 12 different areas of the town to clean.
Watford Council are hoping for similar support this year, with litter-picking kits, bags, and recycling advice will be available from Veolia, who will work alongside residents.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said: “We are very proud to support this fantastic initiative once again. The Great British Spring Clean is the perfect opportunity for residents to get active outdoors and help clear up any rubbish that you see.
“Don’t forget that you can borrow the litter-pickers free of charge throughout the year, not just in March, so we can continue to keep Watford clean. I’d like to thank everyone in our town who is coming together to support this great initiative.”
