OxClean – Shaping a Cleaner City

Our 2025 Spring Clean dates are here!

7, 8, 9 and 14, 15, 16 March

Thanks to everyone who volunteered in 2024 and who helped make it another great success. Around 53 groups participated and we collected c. 4 tonnes of litter (half was recycling and half residual waste). We would like to thank the Manager and staff of Oxford Direct Services for their unfailing support and the prompt and efficient collection of the filled sacks.

Outside Oxford City?

OxClean works with Oxford City Council to arrange for the collection of rubbish. If you want to organise a litter-pick outside the city you will need to arrange collection with your local council. Click here for points of contact.
