Keep Britain Tidy - Great British Spring Clean

Lancaster City Council is urging local residents to join in Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean and put some pride back into where they live, work or play.

The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign which aims to bring people together from across the country to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and coastline.

The three day event takes place from March 3-5 but groups, individuals, community groups, charities, sports clubs, business and local authorities are being called upon now to sign up to take part.

In support of the campaign, Lancaster City Council is offering the free loan of the equipment needed for a safe and successful litter pick for the event and will pick up the litter collected at the end of the day.
