Community Litter Picks
Bassetlaw District Council holds a 'Spring Clean' event every year during the spring months and it has proved to be very successful. Everybody that has taken part in it feels that they have put something back into their local area.
This year we will be organising our Spring Clean on 2nd, 3rd and 4th March 2018.
You can register your Spring Clean now by filling in our form.
We also actively encourage people to take part in Community Litter Picks throughout the year too as well as during the Spring Clean week.
We are now able to offer groups the opportunity to borrow gloves, litter pickers, high visibility vests and we will provide bags for you to collect the litter and we will even collect it from a stated place.
Litter picks are easy to organise, all you need are a few like-minded people eg friends, neighbours, or a group such as a Parish Council, Tenant and Residents Association, Guides, Scouts, Cadet Groups. Even just one person can do it.
There are groups throughout the country that do community litter picks on a regular basis. Have a look on the LitterAction website that is run by Campaign to Protect Rural England for further information.
Before starting a community litter pick, please complete and read our Guidance on Litter Picking to all members of the group.
