Derbyshire Dales District Council has once again pledged its support for this year’s Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The campaign, which runs from March 22nd to April 23rd, will see up to half a million people taking action to clean up streets, parks and beaches across the country.
The Great British Spring Clean brings together individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to make a difference to the environment on our doorstep and in 2018 around 370,000 #LitterHeroes collected more than 630,000 bags of rubbish.
Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton said:
“The Great British Spring Clean is an opportunity for the millions of people who care about the environment on their doorstep to do something positive that will make a visible difference.
“We are delighted that Derbyshire Dales District Council is supporting this year’s campaign and would like to thank them for their support.
“Without councils across the country giving the campaign their backing, our volunteers would not be able to do the incredible job they do.”
A council spokesperson said:
‘We are delighted to be supporting the Great British Spring Clean and we encourage as many groups, individuals, organisations and schools as possible to take part’.
Derbyshire Dales District Council is encouraging groups and individuals who want to ‘do their bit’ to help clear up the litter that blights our streets and parks. The council can offer support by providing equipment such as bags and litter pickers and collection of the bags of rubbish after your event.
Please register your event by 15th April using our online form. Telephone 01629 761302 / 761176 to find out more.
