Communities in Eastleigh Borough are being encouraged to become #litterheroes and help to give the area a spring clean as part of a national tidy-up campaign.

The Great British Spring Clean is organised by Keep Britain Tidy and will be held across the country between March 22 and April 23, 2019.

Litter spoils our environment and can cause harm to wildlife. The month-long campaign 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.

How do I get involved?
People can register on the Great British Spring Clean website to host a clean-up event, or find an existing one to join. Events are already planned around Chandlers Ford, Bishopstoke and Hamble.

There are three ways you can get involved:

  • Sign up to host a clean-up or log in to My Dashboard if you’ve signed up before
  • Join a clean-up near you
  • Pledge your support

How can Eastleigh Borough Council support your clean-up?
As part of their commitment to making Eastleigh a greener, cleaner Borough, they are able to loan litter pickers to groups and supply free rubbish bags.

Groups taking part can also liaise with the Street Scene team to arrange for the litter they have gathered to be collected and disposed of.

If you think the Council could support your event, please email streetscene@eastleigh.gov.uk.
