The BIG Spring Clean is Northern Ireland's biggest volunteer clean-up. We need your help to make it happen!
The BIG Spring Clean 2023 takes place between 01 March to 30 April and is open to individuals, schools, groups and businesses from all communities who want to rid their local environment of litter.
To get involved, you can:
- Take part in a clean-up - check out what's on near you.
- Organise your own clean-up and get your community involved. Sign up to Adopt A Spot and request a free Clean-Up kit. Ask your local council for some help - check out our Council Contacts page. Please read the hints and tips booklet for some helpful info.
- Add your signature to keep up to date with all upcoming Live Here Love Here opportunities.
