Three Rivers supports Keep Britain Tidy environmental campaign
24th February 2020
Three Rivers District Council has pledged its support for this year’s Great British Spring Clean, run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The campaign runs from March 20 - April 13, it will see up to 600,000 people, #LitterHeroes, taking action to clean up streets, parks and beaches across the country. The Council is arranging a number of litter picks, which will be publicised in due course, or, if you would like to arrange an event please get in touch.
Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton OBE said: “The overwhelming response to last year’s Great British Spring Clean showed that there are many hundreds of thousands of people out there who love where they live and are prepared to take action to make it better for themselves, their families and their communities.
“We are delighted that Three Rivers 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.”
Sara Bedford, Leader of the Council, added: “I am delighted that our councillors, residents and staff are taking part in this year’s campaign. Our actions will contribute towards our desire to continue to have a clean environment that makes Three Rivers a perfect place to visit and live in.”
We need volunteers to come and help pick-up litter, separate the litter they pick into two bags: one for recyclable materials, and a second for rubbish. Three Rivers will then collect these bags to ensure that they are recycled appropriately.
If you are interested in taking part in a local litter pick or if you would like to hire equipment to run your own litter pick, please contact us and further details will be sent when dates and locations have been fully organised: Enquiries@threerivers.gov.uk
