What is Snowdon Tidy?
Snowdon Tidy is an initiative to achieve and sustain a meaningful reduction of litter on all main paths from the base to the summit of Snowdon. This includes the car parks and responsible disposal of rubbish i.e. recycling not landfill.
The Snowdonia Society contributes to the Snowdon Tidy initiative by organising litter picks on Snowdon each year. These litter picks are open to all of our volunteers and help reduce the amount of litter on Snowdons footpaths, car parks and surrounding areas.
The initiative is supported by the Snowdonia National Park Authority, Cymdeithas Eryri the Snowdonia Society, Snowdon Mountain Railway, Halfway Café, Natural Resources Wales, Keep Wales Tidy, North Wales Environmental Outdoor Charter Group, RAW Adventures, Snowdon Marathon, Bangor University (through the Green Innovation Future Technologies (GIFT) project), Wales Centre for Behaviour Change and the Welsh Institute for Sustainable Environments (WISE).
Collectively as a group we cover three key sectors: Conservation, Education and Recreation. We believe that it is important to represent each sector as they are all connected to the success of the initiative.
