The South Gloucestershire BIG Spring Clean 2013 which runs from 1 March – 30 April is encouraging everyone to join in. Friends, families, neighbours, parish councils, community and voluntary groups, church groups, schools, students, youth clubs, scouts, cadets, brownies, guides, and businesses are all taking action against litter.
Many groups are already taking part in voluntary clean-ups during the year, but the BIG Spring Clean gives you the chance to play an important part in a bigger, co-ordinated campaign. If you care about your local environment, it's the perfect opportunity to venture down to your local open space, woodland, river, park or public garden and take action.
Free gloves, refuse sacks, litter pickers and hoops are on offer to groups who organise a community BIG Spring Clean event. We can arrange to collect the bags of litter you pick up. Unfortunately, we can no longer supply skips for the disposal of rubbish.
Bags and gloves:
We can provide free bin bags and gloves (please state numbers for adults and/or children).
Litter pickers and hoops:
We can provide the necessary equipment to make picking up litter easier. There are limited numbers available so advanced booking is required. The items must be returned after your event is held.
We provide clear bags for recyclable waste. Please separate your litter as you collect it - it's much easier and less messy to separate recyclable and non-recyclable litter into different sacks during your tidy up rather than after. To help you recycle, please request some clear plastic bags for your group on the booking form. For more information about recycling please visit our recycling page.
