Kingston Council and the community set to work together to be #LitterHeroes

Great British Spring Clean

Kingston Council is calling on local communities to come together and become #LitterHeroes as part of the Great British Spring Clean campaign.

The initiative, which runs from 22 March to 23 April, is set to see the council and Veolia, Kingston’s waste contractor, offer gloves, rubbish bags and collections of bags of litter to those taking part.

Cllr Hilary Gander, Portfolio Holder for Environment & Sustainable Transport at Kingston Council, said:

“The Great British Spring Clean is a fantastic initiative which we’re proud to be supporting. I look forward to seeing local people and groups come forward and join us in making our borough better, together.”

Mick Beach, Contract Manager for Veolia Kingston, added:

"Our teams are out there working to keep the borough clean. Rubbish impacts the environment wherever it is and we are delighted to assist any groups willing to help spread that message and take positive action."

Send us snaps of your event to @RBKingston on Twitter or @RBKingstonCouncil on Facebook and use the hashtag #LitterHeroes.
