Are you under 25 years old? Want to help keep your local area tidy, plus be in with the chance of winning a voucher to spend at a zero-waste shop near you and a goodie bag?
If so, you’ll want to get involved in Keep Wales Tidy’s #TidyTakeover online challenge.
How to take part
All you need to do is help clean-up your local area during September, find the weirdest or the oldest item you can (or both), and post it on either your own or Keep Wales Tidy’s social media channels.
It can be an image or a video, but if it’s a video, please grab the item from the right-hand side of the screen and pass it across to your left. This is because Keep Wales Tidy will be creating a takeover together video at the end of the month where they will join everyone’s clips together.
The closing date for the competition is September 17.
If you are under 25, get involved in our #TidyTakeover on social media this September to celebrate our litter picking hubs reopening and win a zero-waste shopping voucher ???? Find out how to enter here https://t.co/0jSdVyqV0b #CaruCymru Closing date 17 September pic.twitter.com/HdKrZ9Nox3

“Do a positive thing”
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “The #TidyTakeover is a great chance for young people to do a positive thing in their local area, plus there’s the added bonus of a prize to win! The clean-ups can be big or small, but we please ask anyone who takes part to make sure they stay safe and take the all the necessary hygiene precautions.”
