BIG Spring Clean returns to Ashfield

Posted onPosted on 21st Feb

For the seventh successive year, Ashfield District Council’s annual BIG Ashfield Spring Clean is returning.

Free bulky waste collections, flying skips, extra side waste collections, litter picks, and community engagement are part of the annual campaign, which has been running since 2018.

On Saturday, 9th March, there will be flying skips around Kirkby and surrounding villages, followed by visits to Sutton on the following Saturday.

On week commencing 18th March, residents in Kirkby and Sutton will be able to take advantage of additional side waste collections.

As part of the three-week long campaign, council staff, councillors, and residents will be taking part in organised litter picks in Sutton and Kirkby town centres, while schools will be joining councillors at Brierley Forest Park and Selston Country Park to paint and put up bird boxes, as well as pick up litter.

Council leader Coun Jason Zadrozny said: “Residents love the Spring Clean as a time to responsibly dispose of excess waste after the festive period. The Spring Clean brings everyone together as a community and we can’t wait to restore pride in our area.”

Free bulky waste collections will be starting again from April in Kirkby and surrounding villages, moving to collections in Hucknall in May, with collections in Sutton in June. The cycle then repeats again in July, giving residents four points throughout the year that they can book their one free collection of up to three items. Bulky waste collections can be booked at the council website or by calling 01623 450 000.
