MK Council backs Keep Britain Tidy’s million-mile mission to clean up the country

Milton Keynes Council has pledged its support for Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean campaign, and is asking more local people to be #LitterHeroes.

During the last year, people have relied on local parks and green spaces for walks, somewhere to exercise and to play.

The charity has reported a massive increase in the number of residents who have started litter-picking during the lockdowns, with the number of #LitterHeroes growing by a third in less than 12 months.

The Great British Spring Clean runs from 28 May – 13 June 2021. It calls on the public to help the charity achieve a million miles of litter-picking.

MK Council is offering to lend local people and groups litter pick kits free of charge. Visit our website for a list of where you can collect them nearest to you, and visit the Keep Britain Tidy website to check if your local area is already taking part in a clean-up.

The Great British Spring Clean, now in its sixth year, brings together individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to make a difference to the environment on our doorstep. In 2019, more than half a million #LitterHeroes collected just under a million bags of litter, weighing around 4,308 tons.
