From 11 to 27 September, Keep Britain Tidy will once more be organising the UK’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign: the Great British September Clean 2020, after the Spring Clean was postponed due to COVID-19.
In 2019, more than 560,000 people took part.
- 17,097 clean-ups were held and 957,377 bags of litter collected – that’s 239,344 wheelie bins full of rubbish or 4,308 tonnes worth.
- Around 61% of the litter collected was ‘general waste’ and approximately 39% has been recycled (18% plastic, 21% aluminium).
- Over 1.1 million hours have been dedicated to the campaign – equivalent in time to 128.5 years(24/7).
In 2020, the organisers are aiming to get 600,000 #LitterHeroes.
