Student Spring Clean – Heroes Wanted!
Did you know that in 2016 Hull City Council spent £60,000 on tackling the growing problem of litter on our streets? And a staggering £50,000 PER MONTH on contaminated blue recycling bins! Don’t you agree that money could have been put to better use?
HullSTARS in partnership with the University of Hull and Hull City Council are backing a campaign to get half a million people out and about cleaning up their local communities in March 2017.
The brand new Great British Spring Clean will roll out for the first time in 2017, with a view to it becoming an annual event helping to bring people together and clean up the country.
The event, named ‘The Student Spring Clean’, will be encouraging and supporting students, local residents, landlords and staff who want to ‘do their bit’ to help clear up the litter that blights our streets.
The event will be held on Friday 3rd March 2017. The event will run from 11am-3pm, however the day will be split into 2 sessions. The Morning Session, commencing 11am-1pm, meeting 10.30am at HUU Reception. The afternoon session commencing 1.30pm-3pm, meeting point TBC.
Volunteers are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm they’d like to take part. All equipment will be provided on the day, along with lots of freebies, including Pizza, HUU Merchandise and lots more!
Litter remains a huge problem across the country, causing harm to the environment and wildlife, with councils in England having to spend over £700 million on street cleaning services every year.
