Harlow’s Spring Clean is underway after council staff, councillors and staff from HTS and Veolia carried out the first litter pick on Friday (22 March 2019) as part the Great British Spring Clean.
“A great day to start Harlow’s Spring Clean with Harlow Council staff, councillors, HTS and Veolia litter picking. I shouldn’t be pleased, but because people drop litter, we filled over 25 bags of rubbish which included a pair of swimming trunks!”
People across the country are taking part in Keep Britain Tidy’s annual clean up campaign which runs this year until 23 April 2019. Over 50 community litter picks are taking place in Harlow this month all supported by the Council who are providing litter picking equipment and bags.
The local clean up events will be in addition to the normal day-to-day work HTS does cleaning up the town.
The council hopes the campaign will help increase pride in the town.
