Welcome to the Great British Spring Clean 2020!

The annual Keep Britain Tidy campaign is back.

Together, we can make a massive difference. All our individual actions can help to transform our country for the better, creating cleaner streets, parks and beaches, protecting our wildlife and, ultimately, stopping the tide of plastic that is doing so much damage to our oceans and marine life.

The Great British Spring Clean is about demonstrating that you love where you live – whether that’s by pledging to pick while you’re walking the dog or taking the kids to school, hosting a clean-up or joining someone else’s clean-up.

Last year, more than 560,000 people took part and this year we are aiming to get 600,000 #LitterHeroes out there.

The Spring clean is taking place between 20 March and 13 April 2020. The Keep Britain Tidy webpage has launched so you can head on over to pledge to pick, join a clean-up or host your very own!

Schools are encouraged to join up (even if the litter pick is just in your school grounds!) for the Great Big School Clean. All schools that sign up will be in with a chance of winning £1,000 worth of Wilko products for your school too!
