The Big Tidy Up was a national campaign run by ENCAMS to encourage the public to participate in community tidy ups.  OWP supported this campaign locally through advertising and promotion, and by providing litter-picking equipment. Partner Councils also provided collections of waste and recyclables after events had taken place.

 

Further detail and results of the campaign in Oxfordshire will be provided in a presentation at the OWP meeting.
