The aim of the campaign is to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages and countryside.
AVDC already have operational resource that works across the Vale to tackle litter but we are calling for your help!
If you wish to get involved please go to the Keep Britain Tidy (KBT) website. You can download the comprehensive guide to organising a community event here and KBT is asking that all local events are registered on their website. This will enable them to keep track of all the good work going on across the country. There is also a risk assessment provided which should be used to consider any potential risks involved with the event. For further information please visit Keep Britain Tidy website.
To support local events AVDC can arrange for all litter that is collected to be removed from a central location. To arrange this please email full details to streetscene.
We can also provide a supply of bags which can be used for the event. These can be collected from reception at our Gateway Office, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury, HP19 8FF.
Any queries please contact streetscene where an officer will be able to help you. For any events being organised in Aylesbury’s town centre you can contact Aylesbury Town Council who are also supporting the KBT campaign.
Please note: If when carrying out your litter pick you come across any incidents of fly tipping please can we ask that you leave the waste in situ and report to streetscene. This will allow us to investigate and arrange for the appropriate organisation to remove the waste.
Thank you! Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep.
