A Big Thank You To All

We now have all the results from the Great British Spring Clean.

Our thanks to all those that took part and the support of idverde that provide much of the community equipment.

Thousands of Wiltshire residents took part in more than 140 litter picking events for the Great British Spring Clean this weekend.

From 3-5 March 142 events were held across the county as more than 3,200 volunteers of all ages took part with 3025 bags of rubbish collected a total of 18 tonnes.

The events followed and exceeded last year’s success of Clean for the Queen to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday in which Wiltshire was second only to London in the amount of litter collected. Last year 1,500 volunteers took part in more than 70 litter picks with 14 tonnes of rubbish collected.

Wiltshire Council supported communities by helping them register their events on the Great British Spring Clean website for the weekend and delivering litter picking equipment where required. Wiltshire Council contractor Idverde collected all the bags of litter in a one-off collection following the events.
