Keeping Wales Tidy
The Women’s Institutes created the Keep Britain Tidy group in the 1950s, and in 1972 the Keep Wales Tidy campaign was launched.
Originally it was part of the Welsh Directorate until devolution began. In 2005 it became an independent charity setting high standards for the beautiful places we all enjoy in Wales .
Committed to maintaining a good-quality environment for the benefit of our communities’ health, wellbeing and economy, Keep Wales Tidy works to deliver practical action, environmental education, training, business services and environmental solutions across Wales.
Its vision is a beautiful Wales that is cared for and can be enjoyed by everyone. To that end, it has provided equipment at a number of locations across England and Wales for individuals or groups who want to take part in litter-picking as a way of contributing to an enjoyable and safe environment.
The litter hubs have equipment such as litter-pickers, hoops, hi-vis vests and binbags. The kit, its website tells us, also contains all necessary health and safety guidance including a Litter Picking Loan Agreement which must be completed before any equipment can be borrowed. Further guidance documents are available on the website.
