Truro BID

City Clean-Up is coming back 20 to the 23 October 2021

On Wednesday 20 to Saturday 24 October marks Truro’s fourth City Clean-up event.  In the past we have had several business and community organisations help spruce up our great little clean city.  This is organised by Truro BID and Newham BID and the event involves community and business representatives volunteering their time by litter-picking and cleaning within the city centre and surrounding community housing areas. 

 Along with Truro BID and Newham BID, Community volunteer, Paul Caruana and Damien Richards, Community Development Officer from Truro City Council, play a vital role in helping the mini army come together to make Truro shine.

In the past - we have received support from a large number of community organisations including; Truro in Bloom, Truro Lions, Cornwall Fire & Rescue, Green Street Volunteers, St. Petroc’s, Café Chaos, along with members from resident groups Rosedale, NBCA Malpas Road, Malabar, Pen An Dre Community Associations, and Hendra Carrick Sports and Recreation Centre. Cornwall Council’s Adult Care and Support Team based in the Leats, who support adults with learning and physical disabilities also have taken part, along with some of their clients.

Previously - the Truro and Newham Businesses involved included Tesco, The Alverton, Lemon Street Lettings, Kartha Commercial Cleaning, BLS, Acorn Recruitment, Anytime Fitness,Wilko, City Road Vets, Truro and Penwith College ESOL students, Café Choas, Pennyworths, Biffa, Hooked Media and Costa who provided volunteer hours or donated in some way.  We collected more than 130 bags of rubbish in three days.


Clean Cornwall helped City Clean Up to happen by lending the litter picking equipment.  If you would like to volunteer for the next City Clean planned for 20, 21, 22 and 23 October 2021 please email
