The Barbican has become one of the first three buildings in England to receive a Keep Britain Tidy award in recognition of creating a clean, litter free and attractive environment for the public.

Keep Britain Tidy was impressed with the Barbican’s engagement with the public through its coloured coded recycling systems as well as the strategy for inclusion and accessibility, ensuring non-English speaking visitors can engage with the recycling programme. 

The Barbican, the Bullring shopping centre in Birmingham and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool are the first three buildings in England to be recognised for the award. 

“The environment is something at the forefront of our thoughts here at the Barbican so we are really honoured to have been given this award,” said Jackie Boughton, head of sales at the Barbican. “Corporate social responsibility is something we take great pride in and part of that is managing litter and waste responsibly. Keep Britain Tidy campaign tirelessly to educate the next generation and eliminate litter and waste as much as possible. I hope that our success will inspire other venues to do just that.”
