Litter Heroes are Once Again Joining Forces for Spring Clean Cymru

Litter Heroes are Once Again Joining Forces for Spring Clean Cymru

Be part of the pick (20 March – 13 April 2020)

Keep Wales Tidy is calling on people across Wales to help improve the environment on our doorstep by getting involved in its annual Spring Clean Cymru campaign.

The charity is aiming to inspire thousands of people to join forces to collect and safely dispose of litter from our streets, parks and beaches, recycling as much as possible. Community groups, schools and businesses will all be taking part between 20 March to 13 April.

Spring Clean Cymru is part of the Great British Spring Clean. In 2019, over 563,163 people, including 175,055 students, volunteered their time to take part in the campaign – the biggest ever!

This year’s campaign will not only see tonnes of litter being removed from the environment on our doorstep, it also aims to rescue thousands of the plastic bottles and aluminum drinks cans that are simply thrown on the ground but could, very easily, be recycled.

Lesley Jones, Chief Executive for Keep Wales Tidy, said:

“The value of a good quality environment can’t be underestimated. It not only affects the look and feel of a place but has a significant and far-reaching impact on our health and wellbeing and the local economy. That’s why we’re encouraging the people of Wales to get outdoors, be proud and help care for where they live. We want to make spring clean bigger and better than ever!”
