Join the Great BRISTOL Spring Clean!

Grab a litter picker and high-vis and join us for another blooming marvellous Great Bristol Spring Clean!

With just a few weeks to go until the 2020 Great Bristol Spring Clean, we’re gearing up to make this the best year ever for our award-winning litter picking event.

Last year, we had 1,219 extraordinary volunteers litter picking along pathways, pavements, gardens and parks all over the city. An incredible eighty-five separate events took place and a total of 1,132 bags of rubbish and recycling were litter picked from every corner of Bristol!

This year, we’re teaming up with the Big Tidy and asking Bristol’s blooming marvellous businesses to help us bring the sparkle back to our streets by organising a lunch time litter pick. Getting involved couldn’t be easier, with Bristol Waste supplying all the kit needed for a fun and safe event. Whether you’re a team of two or an office of two thousand, we’re calling on you to put down your pens and pick up a litter picker this spring!

But first, let’s get down to business.

Speaking B2B, we understand that before you sign up to the Great Bristol Spring Clean you’ll want to know what your ROI will be. The good news is the KPIs are clear; we’re talking CSR (corporate social responsibility), WFF (warm fuzzy feelings), GTKYCB (getting to know your colleagues better) and of course a whole lot of sweet FA (fresh air, obviously).

So, what are you waiting for?

It’s time to suit up (dress code: hi-viz) and show up to the Great Bristol Spring Clean 2020!

Ready to have a blooming marvellous time?

Reserve your litter picking kit today and join us between 20 March and 20 April for the 2020 Great Bristol Spring Clean and join thousands of others who will be making a positive impact on our streets, parks and communities.

When you sign up you will be supplied with:

  • litter picking sticks
  • high-visibility tabards
  • bags for collecting recycling or waste
  • hoops to help keep your bags open
  • a poster, email signature graphic and social media image to promote your litter pick (scroll down to find them)!
