Join the Big Saturday Clean-Up
Register now for one (or all) of 3 Saturday Clean-Up days
May 29th, June 5th or June 12th
Now that Covid restrictions are easing and we can all get out and about more, it’s time for the delayed OxClean Spring Clean to go ahead to help get rid of all that lockdown litter that has been building up in our streets, parks and greenspaces, and waterways.
Sadly, during lockdown, 365 of our litter pickers were stolen from our store, but we are working hard to raise funds to replace them, and we already have enough for single day litter picks which comply with Covid guidance (we will quarantine the equipment for 72 hours before and after use). If you want to help us to get back on track, then please think about donating the £10 cost of a litter picker HERE, or maybe buy your own picker.
So register early to avoid disappointment and be part of making our City beautiful again. We will help you comply with all the current Covid guidance nearer the time.
OxClean is an Oxford Civic Society initiative dedicated to keeping Oxford clean and tidy all year round – ensuring that our beautiful city is a welcoming and pleasant place for people to live, work and visit. We work in partnership with Oxford City Council, The Oxford Times and local community groups and schools.
Meanwhile, there is much to be done to protect our communities and environment from damage caused by discarded rubbish. If you wish to continue to collect litter in the neighbourhood where you go out to exercise, you might consider purchasing your own litter picker as sadly we can’t currently lend you equipment due to lockdown restrictions. You can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more advice about what you need and areas that you might visit. But do stay safe when you are out, complying with current government guidance and avoiding risks on fast roads or flooded areas near rivers.
