Bins, recycling and street cleansing

The Great British Spring Clean fortnight coordinated by Keep Britain Tidy starts on Friday 17 March and runs to Sunday 2 April.

North Northamptonshire Council are delighted with the response we have received from local groups again this year. Many Parish and Town Councils, voluntary groups and individuals have contacted us to borrow equipment to help them with their litter picks. As a result, nearly all our equipment has already been booked out. 

The good news is that litter-picking is a simple action that anyone can do to make an immediate and visible difference to their area  –  a Keep Britain Tidy survey showed 85% of those who took part in last year’s Great British Spring Clean reported that taking part made them feel more pride in their local area. And 74% said it improved their mood too!  

We urge everyone that takes part to contact us to pre-arrange removal of collected material and take photos.  We will publish a selection of pictures of the best ones so keep looking to see if yours is one of the selected ones.
