Big Spring Clean launches

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful is asking local community groups and individuals to register to take part in the BIG Spring Clean.

The event focuses on litter during the month of April, enabling businesses, schools, community groups and individuals to unite to clean up and to Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

The charity aims to build a national movement for change through the civic pride campaign, Live Here Love Here.

Live Here Love Here draws together Government, local authorities, Tourism Northern Ireland, community groups and individual volunteers.

Together, they are forming an unstoppable force for change on litter by cleaning grot spots, by sprucing up overgrown spaces and by changing attitudes to make littering unacceptable.

Last year’s BIG Spring Clean saw 105,819 people participate, removing over 127 tonnes of waste from neighbourhoods, beaches and countryside.
