Spring Clean 2018

Help tidy up your neighbourhood this spring by joining in our Spring Clean.

Our 2018 campaign will take place from Monday 12 February to Monday 14 May and we want to make it the biggest yet, with more community groups and individuals joining in than ever before.

More than 60 groups took part in the 2017 Spring Clean and there was a record number of 70 organised events, with over 700 bags of litter collected.

Sign up today and help us make 2018 South Gloucestershire’s cleanest spring ever. You can organise a litter pick at any time during the spring clean campaign and by avoiding the most popular weekends, we are more likely to be able to lend your group litter picking equipment.

Our Spring Clean campaign for 2018 coincides with the Keep Britain Tidy national Great British Spring Clean, which runs from 2-4 March.

How do I get involved?

The South Gloucestershire Spring Clean is the perfect opportunity for everyone to help keep their town, village, High Street, woodland or park free from litter and clean for all to enjoy. 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.

If you would like to get involved and organise a spring clean event near you simply register the event with us using the booking form.

Bags and gloves

We can provide free bin bags and gloves. Please state the number of adults and/or children taking part on the booking form.

Litter pickers and hoops

We can provide the necessary equipment to help make picking up litter easier.

There are limited numbers available and we receive high demand during peak weekends throughout the Spring Clean campaign. We advise you to book any equipment required as far in advance as possible.

All items must be returned to the council after your event.

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 as much as possible, you can order clear plastic bags for your group on the booking form. For more information about recycling please visit our recycling page.

If you cannot dispose of the litter you collect, we can arrange to collect the bags for you.


Register now to claim your free spring clean 2018 supplies by completing the booking form and returning it to us.

Don’t forget to let us know how you get on via @sgloscouncil on Twitter or posting on our Facebook page.
