The Great BRISTOL Spring Clean

Grab a litter picker and hi-vis and spring into action!

Last year, brilliant Bristolians held 98 litter picking events. (12 more than the previous Spring Clean back in 2019!) In total, 233 of you took part in 2021, spending 709 hours litter picking and collecting a whopping 376 bags of litter.

Now, we’re gearing up for 2022 to be the best ever Great Bristol Spring Clean.

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. Whether you’re a team of two or an office of two thousand, we’re calling on everyone to put down your pens and pick up a litter picker!

Calling brilliant Bristol businesses

Speaking B2B, we understand that before you sign up to get spring cleaning 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 2022!
