Spring Clean Scotland

The 2024 #SpringCleanScotland will take place between 15 March to 28 April. Spring Clean Scotland is our Spring campaign which brings together people from across Scotland to tackle litter. While the team at Keep Scotland Beautiful work on planning the event, why not be inspired by reading our report on all your collective efforts from the the 2023 Spring Clean. It is never to early to start planning. 

Get involved by:

  • Organising a litter pick in your community. Check out our guidance to help you set-up a safe and successful event. Make sure you register it through our members site so that we can track all the amazing activity across Scotland. 
  • Joining a public litter pick. Check out our Clean Up Scotland map for events you can join.
  • Completing a litter survey and help us gather data on common litter items and behaviours.
  • Helping us spread the message and get more people involved. Use our communications pack and social media cards on your platforms.

Every action, however small, makes a difference. So don't forget to register your pick on our members site

The 2024 Spring Clean Scotland themes are:

  •  Marine Litter– It’s estimated that up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic gets into the sea each and every year – that's a truck full of litter a minute and 80% of total marine litter comes from land.
  • Health and wellbeing - The relationship between the environment and us is one of interdependence. The health of the planet influences our own personal health and wellbeing, as well as ourcommunities, families, and economies.  
  • Communities – We are privileged to work with and support communities across Scotland. This Spring Clean Scotland we want to take the time to not only celebrate their activities during the campaign- but all the fantastic volunteering that happens throughout the year
  • Nature – The nature crisis is being made worse by Scotland’s litter emergency. We want to take the opportunity this Spring Clean Scotland to create stronger links between the nature crisis, and the litter crisis to engage a wider audience to clean up Scotland for people, places and nature.
