The Great British Spring Clean is Back!

The Great British Spring Clean is back for its seventh year. The event, which runs between the 25th March – 10th April, brings together individuals, community groups, businesses, and schools across the nation to tidy up our public spaces, beaches, and beauty spots. This year, the campaign’s focus was on the #BigBagChallenge and Keep Britain Tidy asked us all to pick up as much litter as we can. In total 447,712 bags have been pledged.

Why Keep Our Public Spaces Clean?

Litter not only looks awful, it harms wildlife, pollutes the environment, and is a risk to health. It also costs local authorities millions of pounds to clear up. Money that could be far better spent elsewhere.

Litter is everyone’s problem and we can all do our bit, no matter how small we think it is. We all deserve to live and work in places that we’re proud of, and that feel safe and clean.

How Clean is Your Business?

If you’re a business owner, you’re perfectly placed to play a part in keeping the area you operate in clean and tidy. It’s not just about doing the right thing; you have a legal duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to keep your business premises clean and safe for employees and visitors to your site.

How clean is your premises right now?

Is the pavement outside covered in bird droppings (guano)?

Is your customer carpark full of litter?

Is there a wall that’s covered in graffiti?

Things like this don’t exactly create the right impression for customers and clients. You can also end up in a dicey legal situation if you don’t sort it out.
