Join a community clean up

Community and local groups play a vital role in keeping our towns, villages and countryside clean and tidy.

A local clean up is a great way to improve your neighbourhood and gets everyone in your community together.

If you are having a community clean up, please let us know via our dedicated number on 0300 300 1375 which operates between 11am-10pm (Sun-Thurs) and 1pm-12am (Fri/Sat)

If you would like to coordinate your own community clean up please contact us and we will provide you with:

  • waste bags
  • litter pickers
  • high-vis vests
  • protective gloves
  • graffiti removal kits
  • and we will remove all of the litter after it has been collected.

IMPORTANT: Needles (Sharps)
Please note that members of public, or Clean Up Teams should NOT pick up needles.  If a needle is found, please contact the Wardens Service on 0300 300 0300 detailing the location and they will arrange for safe removal.


Below is a list of clean ups arranged across Renfrewshire, if you want to help then please go along!
