For those supporting the Clean for the Queen event on 4 to 6 March 2016 in Herefordshire, please call us on 01432 261800 to let us know where and when you are picking so we can arrange suitable collection of your purple bags. This waste cannot be disposed of at recycling centres or be put in with your household waste.

Clean for the Queen is a campaign to clear up Britain in time for Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016.

The campaign was launched by Country Life magazine in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy in a bid to rally volunteers across the country to clean up their local areas.

When The Queen came to the throne, litter was not the problem that it is today. Food packaging, plastic bottles, takeaway meals and cigarette butts have all contributed to a growing menace that affects our wildlife, streets, countryside and sense of pride.
