Residents, community groups and councillors will be taking to the streets for a clean-up of the town centre this weekend, May 10 -12.
Go to Town – the big clean up is organised by the not-for-profit company Environment Kirklees and Huddersfield Civic Society.
Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for one of three days on www.environmentkirklees.org/gototown. They will be issued with tools, litter picking equipment, and hi-vis vests.
Kim Warren, Project Coordinator said: 'While Huddersfield is full of stunning architecture and fringed by havens of green tranquillity, there are times when the willing hands of volunteers are needed to get stuck in.
'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 are often left out and contain a lot of litter. We are contacting some landowners and businesses to ask if we can tackle their sites so that there are fewer parts of Huddersfield that let the side down.’
On Friday and Saturday, the north and south approaches to the town centre will be targeted including parts of the River Colne corridor. On Sunday the work will concentrate on the town centre.
