Truro City Clean Up 8 & 9 March 2024

Truro BID, in conjunction with Newham BID, Truro City Council, Kartha Commercial Cleaning, Clean Cornwall and various other organisations, are hosting a “City Clean Up” on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 March 2024.

The aim of City Clean Up, which Truro BID is organising for the sixth time, is to encourage as many businesses and organisations as possible to volunteer an hour or whatever time they can spare to help clean and tidy the City. By taking part you would be either sign washing, cutting cable ties or litter picking.

We want to cover as much of the City as we can, so local Community Volunteer Paul Caruana ( is organising litter picks to take place in Truro's surrounding neighbourhoods during the same few days. Damien Richards at Truro City Council ( will also be getting Truro community groups involved.

We will supply high visibility vests, gloves, bags and litter sticks (thank you to Clean Cornwall).

Some of those who take part in City Clean Up, may wish to meet up on Friday 8th of March at 4.30pm at The Tapyard Riverside on Newham Road following the Newham BID litter pick!

Truro Businesses and organisations who would like to take part in City Clean Up should please email

City Clean Up, March 2023

Businesses and organisations from Truro and Newham, along with local residents came together again to help spruce up the city’s streets as part of a three-day clean up.

This was the fifth Truro City Clean Up event, organised by Truro BID. Both Truro BID and Newham BID along with local businesses and organisations, and community groups joined forces to spruce up the city by litter picking and removing stickers and cable ties.  

Thanks to everyone who volunteered to help spruce up Truro, especially as the weather wasn't great! Thanks also to those who planned to volunteer in the sessions which were cancelled due to the awful weather.
Despite two litter picks being cancelled due to very rainy weather, a total of 80 bags of rubbish were collected during the City Clean Up event. We will be looking to plan another City Clean Up for next spring 2024.

City Clean Up is is just one of the ways that we help to improve the city’s environment. We also fund and install the city centre’s bunting and part funding the floral hanging baskets each summer with Truro City Council. 

The City Clean-Up event is also incorporating the works of the current ReFill Cornwall, Final Straw and Clean Cornwall campaigns
