Get set for Great British Spring Clean 2023

Once again, Wealden residents are being encouraged to help clean up our local area as the Great British Spring Clean returns.

The national campaign runs from 17 March to 2 April and individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to make a difference to the environment on our doorstep.

Wealden District Council are calling on residents to pledge on the Keep Britain Tidy website to pack a bag (or more) of litter. In partnership with Biffa, volunteers will have access to litter picking equipment, waste sacks and a collection service.

Priority for new equipment will be given to any new groups volunteering and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Waste sacks and waste collection services are available to all groups.

Councillor Ray Cade, Wealden’s portfolio holder for Waste, said, “This is a great initiative for residents in Wealden to get involved with and make a difference in our district as a whole and in our communities too.

“Litter costs the council a staggering amount a year to clear, and we are lucky to have community groups and residents that clean up litter from our streets, towns and countryside throughout the year.”

To participate, contact springclean@wealden.gov.uk with your name, address and area you propose to cover.
