  4. Organise your own cleanup and receive a free kit - this includes information on planning your event, a high visibility vest, a pair of gloves, a poster to publicise your event and bin bags. Your local council may also be able to provide litter pickers and additional equipment (for details check out our Council Contacts page). Please be aware that packs are limited and will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. 

Don’t forget to submit the results of your clean up on our website. When you have submitted your results you will be entered into a draw to win a Handicart, kindly donated by Helping Hand Environmental to help with your next clean up. The closing date for competition entries is midnight 20th May 2019.

The BIG Spring Clean supports local community clean-ups across all 11 council areas in Northern Ireland. It is open to individuals, schools, community groups and businesses wishing to rid their streets of litter and discarded rubbish.
