Rallying call for Malvern residents to join the Great British Spring Clean

Malvern Editorial 1st Mar, 2019

MALVERN residents are being urged to take part in this years Great British Spring Clean, writes Sophie Wheeler.

Malvern Hills District Council is hoping residents will help with the launch of the campaign on March 15 by reporting any ‘litter hotspots’ in their area that may need targeting.

The nationwide drive takes place from March 22 to April 23, and will see up to 500,000 people grab a bin bag and help clean up their streets and parks.

Coun Bronwen Behan, responsible for Environment and Community Safety on Malvern Hills District Council, said: “We are lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world.

“However there are still a minority of thoughtless individuals who continue to blight it by littering.

“The Great British Spring Clean is a chance for us to join together against litter louts and help preserve our breath-taking surroundings for everyone to enjoy.”

In 2018, more than 300 local authorities took part in the event and more than half-a-million bags of rubbish were collected at litter-picks across the country.

Email engagement@malvernhills.gov.uk before March 1 to register for the clean or to report a ‘litter hotspot’.
