Join the Great British Spring Clean in Hillingdon

Tuesday 10 March: Hillingdon Council is inviting residents to join community litter pick events at local parks and green spaces, as part of the nationwide Great British Spring Clean.

Great British Spring Clean 2020 Keep Britain Tidy's mass-action event runs from 20 March to 13 April, and the council is supporting the environmental campaign by hosting three events at Hillingdon's award-winning local parks and green spaces.

Litter picking events will take place at Pinn Meadows, Ruislip on Saturday 21 March from 10.30am to 1pm; Cranford Country Park, Hayes on Saturday 4 April from 10am to 1pm; and at Hillingdon House Farm, Uxbridge on Wednesday 8 April from 9.30am to 1pm.

Residents, schools, community groups and businesses can also make a pledge to do something to help the environment, such a promise to recycle more, reduce energy consumption, introduce reusable products, or travel in a more environmentally friendly way.

Cllr Jonathan Bianco, Hillingdon Council's Cabinet Member for Finance, Property and Business Services, said: "Hillingdon is one of London's greenest boroughs and the council will continue to protect its award-winning parks and open spaces, whilst looking for ways to be more sustainable and energy efficient.

"There are a multitude of things that residents can do to help the local environment, whether it's joining in with a community litter picking event, organising your own event or pledging to reduce your plastic use or reuse more products. However big or small, you can help make a difference in Hillingdon and protect the environment for generations to come." 

Residents can make a pledge by visiting www.hillingdon.gov.uk/environment-pledge - which will show how many people are taking part in the campaign. Pledges can also be shared by mentioning @Hillingdon on Twitter and using the hashtag #environmentpledge
