Spring Clean launch

Spring Clean

OxClean co-ordinates annual Spring Cleans carried out by local community groups and schools to tackle litter across the city’s streets, public spaces and litter hotspots. Litter picks lasting about two hours are carried out at a time and location of choice.

Our 2025 Spring Clean dates are here! 7, 8, 9 and 14, 15, 16 March.

Litter-pickers’ map

Our interactive map shows where Spring Clean litter-picks took place and where litter hotspots have been reported. You can also tell us how you got on with this feedback form.

  1. View the full-screen map by clicking the square icon at the top right of the map.
  2. In the map legend (in the sidebar or elsewhere, depending on your device) click the dates of the weekend in which you are interested. You may need to click ‘View map legend’ to reveal the legend. This will reveal the locations of litter-picks that have already been registered.
  3. Move around the map to find either an area which is not yet assigned, or to find a group that you would like to join. The areas targeted by groups that are happy to accept new volunteers are coloured green.
  4. Use this information to complete your registration form.
