The Great British Spring Clean

Last updated:

Each year City of York Council support Keep Britain Tidy's campaign, The Great British Spring Clean. This year, the message is simple - we want to show that the environment belongs to everyone and encourage everybody to take pride in their area by pledging to pick a bag (or more) of litter. You can help in your neighbourhood by helping with a litter pick, leaf clearing, or clean up.

The official 2024 campaign will run from Friday 15 March to Sunday 31 March, but you can get involved before, during and after.

You can volunteer during the Great British Spring Clean event, and all year round, using our online form at:


We lend our support to anyone wanting to be involved. Ways we can help include:

providing equipment, to help make jobs quicker and easier to do
collecting bagged litter
promoting community events
offering practical advice
sharing health and safety guidance
