Autumn Clean Cymru aims to Keep Wales Tidy differently this year

Autumn Clean Cymru takes place between 11-27 September, as charity Keep Wales Tidy asks you to ‘be part of the pick’.

As the annual Spring Clean Cymru had to be postponed earlier this year, Keep Wales Tidy is now hoping that Autumn Clean Cymru will have a big impact, although in a somewhat different way than usual.

This year, to make sure everyone stays safe and well, the charity is encouraging individuals and households to clean-up the streets, parks or beaches on their doorstep.

There are two ways to get involved:

1. Organise a private clean-up for your household in your local area

2. Pledge to do your own individual clean-up

No matter how mild your symptoms are, you should get a test for Coronavirus

Cllr David A Bithell, Deputy Leader of the Council and Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “We are happy to add our support to Autumn Clean Cymru and encourage people in Wrexham to take part. Whether you have time for a ten-minute clean, or if you can spare a couple of hours, it will all make a difference.”

On their website, Keep Wales Tidy say: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support for our work over the past few months. It seems that, more than ever, people are recognising just how important a clean and safe environment is to their health and well-being.

“There’s also been a real sense of frustration at the increase in litter since restrictions have eased. Autumn Clean Cymru is a chance for us all to take a stand and declare that litter is not acceptable.”
