Nottingham City Council is encouraging residents to join in the national community clear up day and support them to keep Nottingham clean!

The Community Clear Up Day is a ‘national spring clean’, taking place on the first day of spring – Saturday 21 March.

Cllr Nicola Heaton, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Nottingham City Council, said: “Whether you’re a group of friends and neighbours, a litter clean-up group, a local business, a school or on your own, what better way to help keep Nottingham clean by organising a big spring clean?

“You might be tackling a favourite spot by yourself, getting your work mates involved to clear up a corner of the park, or organising the neighbours to give your whole street a seasonal spruce up. Whatever you take on, it’s amazing how small actions can transform our local spaces for the benefit of the whole community.”

Nottingham City Council is supporting groups and individuals who are taking part on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March by providing bags, gloves and litter pickers, and collecting all the rubbish.

Keep Britain Tidy has also developed a range of downloaded resources, including planning tips, to help residents. Please visit
