Spring Clean Scotland returns for 2022

The annual Spring Clean Scotland event returns to its usual slot in 2022, running from 21st March to 21st April as part of the Great British Spring Clean.

Organised by Keep Scotland Beautiful, Spring Clean Scotland provides community councils and other organisations with an opportunity to organise litter picks in their local area. Keep Scotland Beautiful has created a supporters’ pack with all the information you need to set up your own litter pick, from the equipment you might need to how to ensure everyone taking part stays safe and has a good time.

Getting hold of the right equipment for a litter pick is not always easy but Keep Scotland Beautiful have been working since September 2020 to create a network of Community Clean Up Hubs across Scotland that lend litter picking equipment, litter pickers, gloves, bag hoops and high visibility vests for individual or group clean ups.

There are now over 75 Community Clean Up Hubs across Scotland who can provide community councils with the proper equipment to take part in Spring Clean Scotland or other litter picks throughout the year.
