The Great British Spring Clean has started

Some 37 community groups across the District have so far volunteered to spend their time and effort picking up litter and brightening up our lanes and verges.

The Great British Spring Clean runs until 23 April, allowing groups to make the best use of the weather and their time to litter-pick. Wealden District Council has been providing volunteers with waste picking equipment including litter picks, waste sacks and gloves.

We still have a few litter picks available. Please get in touch on They will be made available on a first come, first served basis.

Our waste contractor Kier is helping by providing some equipment and a special waste collection service.

Have a great day. You can register your event on the Keep Britain Tidy website which contains lots of useful information. Please take care when litter picking and make sure you can be seen.
