Take part in the Great British Spring Clean

Great British Spring Clean events

Calling all litter heroes! We’re encouraging residents in our neighbourhoods to come together between March 22 and April 23 to participate in the Great British Spring Clean.

Wherever you live, you and other members of your community can make a real difference by sparing just a few hours to collect plastic, cans and general litter and dispose of it safely, helping to keep our streets looking spotless.

Onward will be hosting a number of clean-up events in our neighbourhoods across the North West. Find your nearest one and get involved.
