Spring Clean Heroes Assemble!

We all know everyone is excited that Marvel’s Avengers Endgame is out, but we aren’t interested in your Captain Americas and Hulks – we want your Clean Up Heroes for Spring Clean!

To celebrate the incredible success of #SpringClean19 and to recognise the effort you put in to making Scotland clean, green and sustainable, we want you to nominate your local hero who has made a difference to their community this April and May.

We have four categories up for grabs:

  • 30DaysOfSpringClean
    • In April, we asked you all to join us in picking litter every day for the month. We have been blown away by the effort you all put in sharing your litter picking super powers of endurance. The most consistent person who encouraged others to get out and pick up a piece of litter each day will be crowned our 30Days Hero!
  • Young Person
    • Following the success of our Year of Young People last year, we are continuing our award for the Spring Clean powers of another young person to join our League! Know of someone under 26 who made a big contribution to their area? Let us know!
  • Working Across the Ages
    • One of the themes of our It’s Your Neighbourhood initiative this year is that of Intergenerational Working. For that reason, we want you to tell us about someone who encouraged everyone across all ages to get involved in their community! Did they make links with different generations to get them working together? Nominate that person today.
  • Biggest Change!
    • Whether its in a village, city, next to a river or in the country. We want to hear how a Clean Up event made a difference. You can show us before and after pictures or tell us the story about the change in your community.

These four will form our Spring Clean 19 League of Heroes.

Nominations close on June 10th and heroes selected by the end of June. All heroes selected will received vouchers for our partners at Helping Hand Environmental.

We cannot wait to hear about your amazing stories of people who have transformed their communities for Spring Clean. Email cleanup@keepscotlandbeautiful to find out how to nominate your hero.
