Community litter picks

Could you be a litter hero?  Every year we support dozens of individuals and community groups to carry out volunteer litter picks to help tidy the place they live.  We can loan litter pickers, high-viz vests, gloves and black bags and we’ll collect the bags of rubbish afterwards – all for no charge.  If you’d like to get involved and join our fantastic litter heroes here’s how.:

  • Choose a location

Make sure the area you want to litter pick is safe and easily accessible – don’t access private land.

  • Pick a date

 

We will check there are no other events planned for the same date - there’s only a limited amount of equipment available for loan so unfortunately we can only support one event at a time.  You must complete and return this form for your event to be covered by our public liability insurance.

  • Advertise! 

We can provide you with a template poster to advertise your event and encourage others to join you.  We can promote it on our social media pages and if you’d like to send us some pictures after your event we’ll also add you to our Litter Heroes page.

  • Have a successful and safe event

Our risk assessment/booking form gives you lots of information about how to keep your event safe but you can also find out more at Litter Action.

  • Return the equipment!

Please make sure you return all equipment that you borrow after the event so that we can continue to support other litter heroes.
