Spring Clean 2022 is over! Thanks to everyone who took part.
Dates for 2023 will be announced later this year
What’s Spring Clean all about (and what it’s not).
Read more about Spring Clean – what it is and why we do it – on this Fact Sheet.
Order your litter-picking equipment now!
Our interactive map shows where Spring Clean litter-picks took place and where litter hotspots have been reported. If you are planning a group litter-pick, please check first that another group hasn’t beaten you to it – last year some groups found they had very little litter to collect! If you are registering as an individual you can use the map to find a group or groups you would like to join, and you can tell us on the registration form when you fill it in. Some groups may not be able to take extra volunteers – these are identified separately on the map. For groups that are willing to take individuals the areas are marked in green; those that cannot take extra people are marked in red. If you are looking for an area that really needs cleaning click on the litter hotspots section where the areas are marked in black.

Before Spring Clean
There are things you can be doing before Spring Clean to help make your litter-pick enjoyable and safe.
- Download the Keep it Safe! leaflet and distribute it to your volunteers as they enlist.
- Download the Sign In form and have it ready for everyone in your team to fill in when you brief them before going out.
- It’s worth trying to find local sponsors – approach local shops, pubs, cafes for refreshments!
We will contact you a few weeks before Spring Clean to ask you to fill in an equipment order form. You don’t need to do anything about equipment until then, apart from deciding how many litter-pickers and hi-vis jackets you will need.
On the day
All done? Litter picked, bagged and ready for collection?
Tell us how you got on with this feedback form.
We are preparing a gallery of photos from 2022. Photos from 2021 and some previous years are in the Photo Gallery.
We love to have your photos of your litter-pick, but please read these guidelines before sending them. The guidelines tell you about what pictures we can and can’t use, including some notes on privacy.
When you are ready, upload your photos using this link: www.oxclean.org.uk/gallery/upload-photos/
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.
