Take part in the Great Bristol Spring Clean!
8th February 2017
Do you want to help give Bristol a spring clean?
Your organisation can join schools, community groups and individuals across Bristol who will be working together during 3 – 5 March to help create a cleaner city for everyone. See the press release below for more information about the Great Bristol Spring Clean and details of how to get involved.
Clean Streets Campaign Great Bristol Spring Clean 3-5 March 2017
Mayor Marvin Rees has made a pledge that Bristol will be measurably cleaner by 2020 as a result of his Clean Streets Campaign.
“Cleaning up Bristol’s streets is something everyone in the city wants to see happen and I believe we can do this. We should and can be as clean as cities such as Zurich, Tokyo and Singapore. If we all work together, we can change the city around us and make dirty streets, litter, fly-tipping and all that’s defacing our local communities things of the past.”
The Great Bristol Spring Clean on 3-5 March 2017 (part of the Great British Spring Clean) is your opportunity to pick up some litter and put where you live on the map.
Join schools, community groups and other organisations doing your bit to make your part of the city cleaner and tidier. Just spend an hour or two picking up litter, bag it and leave it in a designated place where Bristol Waste can collect it.
Whether you just pick up and bin a single piece of litter yourself or a group of you clear a green space or more, take some pictures and share it with us and the world and tell us why keeping the city clean is important to you.
We would like clean-ups to happen in every part of the city during 3-5 March weekend. To help you show that you want to live in a cleaner city we can assist by providing litter picking kits for you to borrow and bags to fill with the waste you collect. We have a limited supply of these kits (which include litter pickers and hi-vis vests) so they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
To register your interest please drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know where and when your litter pick will take place, or find us on Twitter at #bristolcleanstreets
If you want to borrow one of our litter picking kits, please also let us know how many people you expect to be involved. We can then arrange a pick up point for the kits and decide how we will collect the bin bags at the end of the session.
