Go to Town 2020

(the Big Clean Up)

is on 17th - 19th April 

In 2019 over 60 Huddersfield residents took the streets in May, for a clean up of the town centre and river corridor. “Go to Town – the big clean up” was organised by not-for-profit organisation Environment Kirklees. In 2020 it is happening over the weekend of 17 - 19 April and is organised by Enviro Kirklees with support from Huddersfield Civic Society and others.


Kim Warren, project coordinator said: ‘Kirklees Council does a lot of work to keep the town centre streets clean and volunteers regularly clean up the footpaths by the river and canal – but there are still areas that get missed. 


‘In Go to Town we are tackling the private land, car parks and green spaces that are often left out and contain a lot of litter. There are parts of the town centre and its gateways that let the side down.’ 


Volunteers are issued with tools, litter picking equipment, and hi-vis vests. The targets area approaches to the town centre, footpaths on the River Colne corridor and parts of the town centre.
