The clean ups are taking place in the period 17th March to 2nd April.

The spring cleans ensure that the district is ready for the sunnier weather and attractive to visitors.

Anyone wanting to organise a community clean-up can find out more can contact their local area co-ordinator's office. In Keighley and Ilkley you can call 01535 618008 or email keighleyareacoordinatorsoffice@bradford.gov.uk

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Portfolio Holder for Healthy People and Places, said: “This annual spring clean is a great boost for our neighbourhoods in both making places look attractive and tidy for spring, but also bringing people together doing something really positive and worthwhile. I hope people will support us by getting involved.”
