Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful is an environmental charity that campaigns directly to the public to change negative behaviour. They work to persuade people to not drop litter but put it in the bin, as well as to clean up after dogs and not to damage their community with graffiti and fly posting.

Their mission is to inspire all sectors of society to take responsibility for creating cleaner, greener and more sustainable communities.

The Big Spring Clean, run by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful is Northern Ireland’s biggest clean up. It is a volunteering and awareness raising campaign aimed at promoting opportunities for groups, businesses and individuals. The programme supports local community clean ups across all Council areas. It is open to anyone wishing to rid their streets, beaches and forests of litter.
