Great British Spring Clean 2024


It's time to get involved in this year's Great British Spring Clean (external link).

Wigan Borough’s litter picking legends are being called upon to collect as little as one bag of rubbish which can make a huge difference to sprucing up our streets.

Keep Britain Tidy’s annual campaigns reminds us all that litter picking is a simple action that anyone can do to make an immediate and visible difference- and help you to feel more pride in your neighbourhood and even improve your mood.

The Council’s Keep It Clean campaign is working to reduce litter across our borough and the Great British Spring Clean is a great chance to get involved.

This dedicated campaign runs in conjunction with the normal day-to-day litter pick collections which are carried out by the council’s Street Scene teams and volunteers throughout the year, whatever the weather.

Why should you get involved?

  • Take pride in our borough - we all share our streets and greenspaces, let’s take pride in our surroundings and remove litter from our streets
  • Being outdoors is brilliant for our mental wellbeing - why not grab a litter picker and give back to your community while enjoying the great outdoors?
  • Give wildlife a helping hand - as well as polluting our streets, parks and beaches, litter harms wildlife and other animals
  • Community spirit - working towards a shared goal is a wonderful way to make friends and meet likeminded people.

To attend one of the below organised community litter pick, register your interest by completing the Great British Spring Clean registration form

If you are doing a litter pick and are sharing the photos on social media, please use the hashtag #KeepItClean so we can share the amazing work of volunteers across our borough on our channels.
