Merton's Great British September Clean
Time & Location
About The Event
Keep Britain Tidy's national Great British September Clean campaign (taking over from the Great British Spring Clean which was postponed earlier this year) is an opportunity for people across the county to be part of a mass clean up of our streets, parks and beaches and collectively take a stand against littering!
Now we are calling on you - our #WasteWarriors - to do your bit to care for our local environment as we join forces (in spirit!) to collect and safely dispose of litter from Merton's streets and green spaces. Help us create a buzz of environmental action on the weekend of 26 & 27th September! ... please click 'Read More'
In light of the current situation*, there are two ways you can get involved and show support for our Great British September Clean:
1. Organise a private group clean-up with up to five family and friends
2. Pledge to do your own individual litter-pick. You can give as little as 15 minutes to the campaign

* IMPORTANT - CORONAVIRUS GUIDANCE
The aim of the Great British Spring Clean is for communities to come together, clean up their local environment and have fun, which of course means staying safe at all times.
Litter-picking can be carried out alone, in pairs or small groups of up to a maximum of six, including yourself, based on the current government guidance** for meeting with people outside of your household.
Individuals currently shielding, in ‘at risk’ groups, displaying symptoms (or in contact with those with symptoms) or have been directly advised to self-isolate should not litter-pick.
Before organising or participating in a clean-up event, PLEASE READ Keep Britain Tidy's Coronvirus Guidance
**Government guidance on the lockdown may tighten or ease over time.
