Live Here and Love Here? Why not join the Big Spring Clean 2016

Live Here Love Here, together with Derry City and Strabane District Council are calling for local community groups, schools, businesses and individuals across the Derry City and Strabane District council area to show that they Live Here and they Love Here by getting involved in the Big Spring Clean.

Litter can blight our towns, villages, beaches, roadsides and countryside and make us feel a little less than proud of our beautiful surrounds. In April Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful will call for everybody to say, ‘Live Here Love Here’ and will be working in partnership with local councils, Department for the Environment and Tourism Northern Ireland to support clean ups throughout Northern Ireland.

Big Spring Clean now forms part of the wider Live Here Love Here campaign which educates and empowers communities to take action and do the right thing to tackle litter and create a sense of community pride throughout the province.

People power is an amazing thing – during last year’s Big Spring Clean over 89,506 people participated in cleaning up their local area and removing over 107 tonnes of litter ensuring that we Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

Throughout April we are calling for your support once again, to find out more information and to register your Big Spring Clean online please visit and we will send you a FREE clean up kit to help with your event.
