The multi-award winning campaign takes place across the borough’s six towns and attracts thousands of people to take part in litter picking and improvement events.
Volunteers can decide what they would like to do on their Big Spring Clean event including litter picking, graffiti removal, planting, painting and supporting local wildlife.
