Tidy Takeover competition

Under 25? Help us promote a litter free Wales, and be in with a chance of winning a zero-waste shopping voucher with our Tidy Takeover competition.

Our growing network of litter picking hubs across Wales are now re-opening as part of our Caru Cymru initiative. Offering all the equipment needed to carry out a safe clean-up, including litter pickers, hi-vis vests, rubbish bags and hoops.

To promote the great work that is happening all over Wales, with many communities coming together to clean up their areas on a weekly basis, we are encouraging younger people under the age of 25 to head out and take part in cleaning up their local area this September.

Get involved!

Our Tidy Takeover competition is running from the start of September until the 17th and gives those that take part the chance of winning a voucher to spend at an ethical shop near you and be crowned our winner on Social Media.

All you’ll need to do is clean-up your local area during September, find the weirdest or the oldest item you can find (or both) and post these on our social media channels or your own.

It can be an image or a video. But if it’s a video, you’ll need to grab the item from the right-hand side of their screen and pass it to their left as we’ll be editing our takeover video together at the end of the month.

Your clean-ups can be big or small, you can use our littler picking hub equipment or not, as long as you are picking litter in a safe and controlled environment.

Please note, young people under the age 18 must be accompanied by an appropriate adult and supervised at all times.


Remember you’ll need to tag in Keep Wales Tidy on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and use the hashtags #CaruCymru and #TidyTakeover, along with your name, age, what you found and where.

Caru Cymru has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.

For more information please get in touch on comms@keepwalestidy.cymru and we can’t wait to see what you find.
