The Big Spring Clean 2019

The Big Spring Clean 2019

29 March - 30 April

The Big Spring Clean is back, and this year it's going to be bigger and better than ever.
Last year more than 1000 volunteers collected over 500 bags of rubbish over one weekend, this year the Big Spring Clean will tackle the whole month of April!
So grab your litter picker and get set to make your neighbourhood a little brighter.

Take part in a Big Spring Clean near you!

Below is a list of Big Spring Clean events with confirmed times already arranged across Renfrewshire. If you want to help then please go along!
