Help us make Oxford a more pleasant place to live, work and relax – and raise awareness of the litter problem. This year, our eleventh, we are again working in association with Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean.

In 2017, nearly 80 Groups from across the city took to the streets, public spaces and grotspots and cleaned up a large quantity of litter. As a result of their hard work, over 4 tonnes of litter plus a lot of flytip was removed from the streets and parks of Oxford. The sight of so many people out litter picking again raised awareness that a cleaner and tidier city is a better place to be! Read more about Spring Clean 2017 here.
