BIG Spring Clean


Residents and groups across South Gloucestershire are once again preparing to spring into action to clean up their neighbourhood and open spaces, helping to make South Gloucestershire a great place to live and work.

The South Gloucestershire Big Spring Clean 2014 will run from 1 March – 30 April, and everyone is encouraged to join in. Friends, families, neighbours, parish and town councils, community and voluntary groups, church groups, schools, students, youth clubs, scouts, cadets, brownies, guides, and businesses are all invited to take action against litter. 

The Big Spring Clean is the perfect opportunity to venture down to your local open space, woodland, river, park or public garden and help to keep it green. 

If you would like to get involved, you can organise a Big Spring Clean event near you. Then register the event with us using the form below. We can arrange to collect the bags of litter you pick up. Don’t forget to let us know how you got on. 

Bags and gloves

We can provide free bin bags and gloves (please state numbers for adults and/or children). 

Litter pickers and hoops

We can provide the necessary equipment to make picking up litter easier. There are limited numbers available so advanced booking is required. The items must be returned after your event is held.   

Recycling litter

We provide clear bags for recyclable waste. Please separate your litter as you collect it - it's much easier and less messy to separate recyclable and non-recyclable litter into different sacks during your tidy up rather than after. To help you recycle, please request some clear plastic bags for your group on the booking form. For more information about recycling please visit our recycling page.  


Register now to claim your free Big Spring Clean supplies by completing the Big Spring Clean 2014 booking form and returning it to us. 

You are also welcome to join us at a Cache In Trash Out event on Saturday 26 April, litter picking while enjoying the hobby of geocaching. Find out more here
