Over 60 bags of rubbish collected for the Great British Spring Clean - 07/03/17
Over the weekend a total of 69 bags of rubbish were collected by volunteers who took part in Keep Britain Tidy's Great British Spring Clean.

As part of a commitment towards keeping the city clean and tidy under the Love Hull Hate Litter campaign, Hull City Council supported organised litter picks from across the city.

Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder with responsibility for environmental services, said:

""We are delighted to see communities taking the initiative to organise community litter picks, because we know that residents and visitors alike are keen to see a clean and tidy city.

""Stopping people from spoiling the city's landscape is a key priority for the council, however this is an element of individual and collective responsibility when it comes to littering.

""I would like to thank the volunteers for taking time out to help make our city an attractive place to live and visit.""

A total of 32 volunteers took part in organised litter picks in areas including Newland Avenue, Alexandra Road, Grafton Street, Lambert Street, De Grey Street, Raglan Street, Cranbrook Avenue, Auckland Avenue and Salmon Grove, Street with organisations including HullSTARS and Unity in the Community.

Sam of HullSTARS, said:

""It's fantastic to be involved in an event that has brought so many people together. Students, residents, local businesses, University of Hull staff and Hull City Council have all worked together to make a real positive difference to the community.

""Hull students raised over £25,000 for charity last semester and are involved in a number of volunteer projects across the city and it's great to see them turn their attention to litter, one of HullSTARS' community priorities. Thank you to everyone involved, you're all litter heroes!""
