KEEP BRITAIN TIDY-Let’s get out together and clean up our country

This March Zac Goldsmith MP is joining thousands of other #LitterHeroes to clean up this country.

Environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy’s annual national clean up – the Great British Spring Clean (2-4 March) is back – helping us all do our bit to reduce the litter blighting our country.

Last year the campaign saw more #LitterHeroes than ever collect a staggering 70,000 wheelie bins of rubbish over one weekend. More than 300,000 people got involved, cleaned up their local streets, parks and beaches, and had fun doing it.

This year we want even more people to get involved and we are delighted our campaign is being supported by Richmond Park and North Kingston’s local MP Zac Goldsmith, who is also encouraging his constituents to sign up now and get involved too.

Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “Littering is a serious issue that blights the beautiful beaches, countryside and cities of the UK. It also has a devastating effect on our wildlife. 

“The Great British Spring Clean is an opportunity for everyone who cares about the rubbish scarring our country and threatening our seas to take a stand.”

Individuals, groups, families, schools, businesses and clubs can all sign up and make a difference. Register at and let’s clean up our country.

Keep Britain
