THE Community Clean-Up are getting involved with the Great British Spring clean to tidy up the streets of Salford.
The big clean up will take place across the weekend in the Claremont area and around MediaCityUK.
The Community Clean-Up are looking for as many people as possible to get involved.
The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that covers our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.
The Great British Spring Clean said:
”We want to inspire 400,000 people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us.
”Join our growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.
”Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep.”
On Friday 2nd March you can help clean up local areas surrounding MediaCityUK.

The community clean up are looking for as many people/groups from the Claremont community to participate in the clean-up.
You can choose to do one day or both days, all of the planned route or a section of the route, or just your street.
The Community Clean-Up are encouraging volunteers to wear sturdy footwear and warm comfortable clothing.
Refreshments will be provided to start you off and to welcome you back at the end of the clean-up.
All litter picking equipment will be provided on the day.
SEO Specialist, Tom Chapman, who works for digital marketing agency CandidSky, said:
”Keeping our streets clean has a number of benefits.
”From a basic view, keeping our roads and pavements free of rubbish helps prevent illness and decreases the number of pests.
”It also changes how we feel about an area.
”For example, my workplace CandidSky is based in Salford and i feel happier and more productive arriving at the office when my commute isn’t surrounded by rubbish.”
Research has suggested that it costs the UK taxpayer £1 billion every year to keep our streets clean.
Tom Chapman added:
”This is a huge amount of money which could be better spent on more worthwhile goals, such as the NHS.
”Thinking about just Salford, last year it was announced the council would be spending £500,000 to clean up the streets.
”It would be in our best interest if we just cleaned up after ourselves.”
