Brent Council is backing The Great British Spring Clean and looking for the borough's #Litterheroes to spruce up local streets and parks, join a community clean-up, or organise a litter-pick of their own.

All environment warriors will be armed with gloves, litter pickers and bags by Brent's waste collection partner Veolia whose staff will clear away the rubbish afterwards.
