Great British Spring Clean

What is the Great British Spring Clean?

The Great British Spring Clean aims to bring people across the country together to clear up litter. This year, the campaign wants to inspire 500,000 people to get involved and clear up the rubbish in our communities.

It will encourage volunteers to take part in a special clean-up weekend on 2–4 March. Anyone can take part including individuals, community groups, charities, businesses, local authorities and more.

What can I do to help?

Here's how you can get involved:

  • Take part in one of Hart District Council's Great British Spring Clean events.
  • Register your event on the Great British Spring Clean website.
  • Hart are offering free sacks for rubbish collection from the Hart District Council offices.
