We need heroes!

Spring clean super heroes are needed to help spruce up the city.

Brighton & Hove City Council is encouraging residents, businesses and community groups to get tough on grime and clean up the city’s litter hotspots

Costumes ( hi-vis jackets) and equipment (gloves litter pickers, brooms and sacks) will be provided for anyone wanting to help rid the city of unsightly rubbish.

Events are already being planned in Brighton and Hove as part of the year’s Great British Spring Clean, organised by the Keep Britain Tidy group.

The national Great British Spring Clean event is being launched over the weekend of March 3 to 5, with events in Brighton & Hove running throughout the month. Cityclean staff are co-ordinating community clean ups all over the city.

Residents, communities and businesses are being invited to come forward and volunteer to clean up their local area. The council has 6,000 special Great British Spring Clean sacks available for community clean up events and the council will be designating special drop off points for sacks of rubbish collected at events.

Cityclean is happy for residents to arrange and run their own event, but can provide an member of staff to co-ordinate if needed.

The council can also provide posters for communities and businesses to promote their events.

Anyone wanting to organise, or take part in an event should contact the Projects team on 01273 294726 or 01273 292929.  contractscityservices@brighton-hove.gov.uk
