The Great British Spring Clean – get involved!

The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.

On the weekend of 2 – 4 March 2018, we want to inspire 500,000 people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us. Join our growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.

Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep.

West Oxfordshire have produced a useful information pack which is relevant for all community clean ups with some additional specific information for West Oxfordshire.
