A Rubbish Call to Action: Appeal for Litter Pickers
Spring is in the air and that means one thing… The Great British Spring Clean! This is the perfect opportunity to get together with friends, neighbours, or your colleagues to show some love for Cheetham and Crumpsall by doing a litter pick.
Surprisingly, litter picking has become a popular hobby that delivers a huge range of benefits from tackling loneliness and low mood to protecting wildlife and reducing crime. The campaign starts on the 17th March and runs through to the 2nd of April.
Keep Manchester Tidy, the partnership between Manchester City Council and Keep Britain Tidy, are on hand to help you take part in the GB Spring Clean. Keep Manchester Tidy will provide you with litter pickers and bags as well as arranging for the bags of litter to be picked up after your litter pick.
To get involved you’ll need to register at keepbritaintidy.org and email firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know what equipment you need and it will be delivered to your door.
You can also join the Keep Manchester Tidy Facebook Group to connect with other local litter pickers and find out more about GB Spring Clean and other local litter-picking events.
Thank you to everyone who gets involved to keep our neighbourhood clean!
