Welcome to Barkisland Big Tidy Up
B A R K I S L A N D L O O K I N G B E T T E R !
We are a group of volunteers who, since 2005, have worked on reducing litter and fly tipping in the area around Barkisland. Supporters in the area help us dispose of rubbish by putting the odd bag in their bins. We work in partnership with Calderdale Council, Yorkshire Water and local landowners. We take a ‘whole area’ approach - there’s no point in removing litter from a lane if the field next to it stays littered. We do regular litter picking plus bigger projects like a clean-up at Scammonden Water in partnership with Covea Insurance and clearing out heavy duty debris from Sandyfoot Clough.
We are developing an ‘On Your Doorstep’ approach - volunteers remove litter from an area outside or near to where they live.
