16 Mar Record breaking number of residents sign up for Harlow Spring Clean
This year has seen a record number of residents sign-up to the Great British Spring Clean, with 82 community clean-ups organised to take place in Harlow.
The event will officially be launched by Harlow Council, on Friday 20 March with council staff, councillors and staff from HTS carrying out the first litter pick in the Stow.
Councillor Danny Purton, portfolio holder for Environment, said: “We would like to thank our residents who will be selflessly giving up their time to help organise and take pride in helping to keep Harlow clean and tidy.
“It is always very inspiring to see how proud people are of their town and by working together residents, the council and HTS can help make Harlow a more pleasant place to live.”
Throughout the campaign, the council will be regularly sharing photos on social media showcasing Harlow’s #LitterHeroes and the incredible work they will be doing; volunteering their time to help make Harlow a more pleasant place to live.
Each clean-up will be in addition to the everyday work HTS do to keep Harlow town clean. Every year the council spends around £2 million on its daily cleaning of the streets, whether that is picking up litter, clearing dumped rubbish, or cleaning off graffiti.
If you see a cleaning issue which needs sorting, report it and HTS will sort it – www.harlow.gov.uk/report
