While the snow put a damper on some plans, residents banded together once the weather warmed up to help make Bristol a cleaner, greener city.

Thank you, Bristol!

We're really proud of the time and effort members of the community put in to tidy up Bristol during the Great Bristol Spring Clean. The event saw 400 volunteers take to roads, lanes, gardens and parks all over - anywhere that needed a little sprucing up! 32 separate events took place across the city and a total of 400 bags of rubbish and recycling were litter picked from Knowle to Horfield and all the places in between. We were overwhelmed with the positive response we received from community groups wanting to do their bit.

Wondering if this is the type of event you'd like to get involved with? Maybe this short video will help persuade you of the positive impact it has on our streets, parks and communities.

And don't forget, litter picking isn’t just for spring. Kits are available all year round!
