How to participate

Everything you need to participate in the Big Cleanup is the willingness to do it!


The Big Cleanup 2017 will take place throughout the entire territory of Latvia on Saturday, 22 April, from 9:00 to 15:00. In every region and town, the cleanup is managed by the COORDINATOR OF THE BIG CLEANUP! (See the contact information of the coordinators in the section Contacts).

Various local governments, educational institutions, organisations, companies, and voluntary enthusiasts in every town and region organise collective cleanups, register them on the Web page of the Big Cleanup, and appoint their site leaders. In other words, if you want to register your cleanup location, agree on it with the coordinator of your local government and only then register your cleanup site on our web page. You can join any of these cleanup locations on 23 April. ALL OFFICIALLY REGISTERED CLEANUP LOCATIONS WILL BE SEEN IN THE SECTION“MAPS — REGISTERED/ORGANISED CLEANUP SITES”.

ON THE CLEANUP DAY YOU ARE GOING TO NEED WASTE BAGS, WHICH ARE WHITE THIS YEAR. The white bags will be handed out on 22 April by site leaders or coordinators in every cleanup site registered at

Before taking part in the cleanup, it is advisable to read the GUIDELINES FOR THE PARTICIPANTS, which contains information on where to receive the bags, what to wear, where to leave the full bags, etc. If you are the SITE LEADER or the COORDINATOR OF THE BIG CLEANUP, please make sure to read about your responsibilities.
