Improve your local area by organising a community litter pick
A community clean-up is a great way to show that you care about your local environment. It may also encourage others to take pride in the area.
If you're able to gather a group of willing volunteers, we can lend you the litter picking equipment you need. We'll also give advice to make sure your event is safe and enjoyable.
You'll need to decide where your clean-up is going to be. Examples include:
- a local play area or park
- school grounds
- your own street
If you want to litter pick on the beach, you'll need to contact our Resorts Team to arrange this. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you've told us about your litter pick, and who'll be attending, we'll provide equipment, including:
- high visibility jackets
- litter pick up sticks
- rubbish bags
We won't provide recycling bags. We find that most of the litter dropped is non-recyclable. Please place any litter found in the rubbish bags we provide.
Community litter picks are generally very safe. It's unlikely you will encounter any hazards. But, as part of the equipment pack, we help by providing a risk assessment guidance note. This will give you some tips to make sure your litter pick is safe and enjoyable.
Organise your litter pick
You can tell us about your planned litter pick online.
To tell us about your litter pick, you'll need to know:
- where you're litter picking
- how many people are taking part
What happens next
Once we've received your form, we'll:
- Arrange a time and date so that you can come collect the equipment before your litter pick
- We'll then arrange a time and date for you to return the equipment after your litter pick has finished
