About Renfrewshire’s Big Spring Clean

Thousands of dedicated volunteers are set to head out on litter picks this April as they support Renfrewshire’s Big Spring Clean, part of the award-winning Team Up to Clean Up campaign.

The annual event was postponed last year due to the pandemic with Renfrewshire supporting Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Summer Clean event instead, but the popular event is back for 2022 and excitement is building already.

Previous events have seen thousands take part in litter picks across the month of action, with the campaign’s sister event Spotless September seeing almost 1,500 people take part in 430 litter picks – which is more than 14 every day.

Renfrewshire Council will provide litter pickers, hoops, bibs and bags for anyone or any group wishing to take part in a litter pick, and the StreetScene team will collect the bags of litter afterwards too.

The event forms part of the Council’s £2.5million investment in the Team Up to Clean Up campaign which supports volunteers, but also invests more in roads sweeping, gully clearing, fly tipping prevention and litter picking.

To request equipment, call 0300 300 1375, email wardens.es@renfrewshire.gov.uk, join our Facebook group or visit www.renfrewshire.gov.uk
