Great British Spring Clean

***Due to overwhelming demand, unfortunately we cannot accept any further applications to take part***

As part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean from 22 March to 23 April 2019 you can help tidy up Harlow by organising a local clean-up event.

We will support you by providing litter picking equipment and we will arrange for HTS to pick up any rubbish you collect.

As a reward for taking part we are offering £100 to all groups which can be used to raise funds for your work. Businesses or non-constituted groups (don’t have a bank account or a committee) can instead donate the £100 to a charity of their choice. You will also be invited to a thank you event at the Civic Centre where you will be presented with a cheque.

You need to bear in mind these guidelines when applying for our support:

  • groups must be made up of a minimum of three adults
  • at least one full bag of litter must be collected in order to claim the £100
  • children should not litter pick for any longer than one hour at a time

Your event will be in addition to the everyday work HTS do to clean up Harlow.
