The Great British Spring Clean 2020 will officially launch on the 25th of January.
In 2019, over 563,163 people, including 175,055 students, volunteered their time to take part in our campaign – the biggest ever! Cleaning up streets, parks and beaches, #LitterHeroes across the country have been making big improvements to the environment on their doorstep.
- 17,097 clean-ups were held and 957,377 bags of litter collected – that’s 239,344 wheelie bins full of rubbish or 4,308 tonnes worth.
- Around 61% of the litter collected was ‘general waste’ and approximately 39% has been recycled (18% plastic, 21% aluminium).
- Over 1.1 million hours have been dedicated to the campaign – equivalent in time to 128.5 years (24/7).
