On the 28th March 2019, the Arbtech team took part in the Great British Spring Clean 2019 – the UK’s biggest ever mass-action environmental campaign. This campaign is run by Keep Britain Tidy, an independent charity focussed on improving the places we all live and work in.
Our team headed to our land in Yarnfield Copse, Stone, Staffordshire for a day of litter picking, team building and a variety of activities aimed at improving the habitat value of our land.
It costs the UK millions of pounds every year to pick up litter so Arbtech were keen to get involved and do our small part to help change behaviour by highlighting this problem.
Stafford Borough Council supported us throughout the day and helped with clearing away around 10 bin bags full of litter that the team picked up. Thanks to Mick Bailey, the Streetscene Area Co-Ordinator at Stafford Borough Council for supporting us.
Here are some pictures that were taken throughout the day…
