SKDC is appealing for organisations, businesses and volunteers to join them in a Community Clear Up day across South Kesteven.
The council is taking part in Keep Britain Tidy’s first national spring clean on Saturday March 21.
In Grantham a two hour litter pick is being co-ordinated by the council starting at 10am at Wyndham Park.
It’s asking volunteers give as little or as much time as they can to help the effort or volunteer to pick litter near their homes or businesses.
SKDC can provide volunteers with litter pickers and bags and will arrange collection of all rubbish on the day.
The council also wants to hear from those wishing to volunteer for clear-ups in the district’s villages.
The campaign recognises there are already many community and corporate groups around the country involved in regular litter picking activities.
It hopes to give these groups the recognition they deserve and encourage other groups – great and small – to help end the scourge of litter.
SKDC’s portfolio holder for healthy environment Coun John Smith said: “The ‘Love South Kesteven and hate litter’ campaign is among the tools to help educate residents about the need to drive down the £1.1m annual clear up costs of litter and fly-tipping in the district.
“We know there are several volunteer efforts that already regularly meet and give up their time do to clear areas of litter in the district.
“We thank them for their continued dedication and now ask other members of the community and businesses to join us on March 21 to help keep the district clean, green and healthy.”
