BIG Spring Clean

The BIG Spring Clean is Northern Ireland's biggest volunteer clean up and each year we need your help to make it happen!

Big Spring Clean Logo

The BIG Spring Clean, taking place each year between 1st March and 31st May, is Northern Ireland's largest community clean-up campaign. Since its inception, 553,571 volunteers have participated in clean-up activities during the Spring months, removing over 800 tonnes of waste!

It is open to individuals, schools, community groups and businesses from all communities wishing to rid their streets of litter and discarded rubbish.

You can help in any one of THREE ways:

  1. Add your signature to show your support and keep updated through our monthly newsletter
  2. Take part in a clean up—check out what's on near you
  3. Organise your own cleanup and receive a free kit - this includes a high visibility vest, a pair of gloves 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 ensure you have read the hints and tips booklet before organising your clean up.

If you organise your own cleanup between the 1st April and 31st May, and register it on our site before 30th April, you'll receive one of our free starter kits* - this includes a high visibility vest, a pair of gloves and bin bags.

Your local council may be able to provide litter pickers and additional equipment (for details check out our Council Contacts page). Please ensure that you have contacted the council at least one week prior to your clean up to confirm waste collection can be arranged.

* Kits are limited—please register your clean up at least one week in advance to ensure delivery.
