Organising your own litter pick

If you love where you live we can help you organise your own litter pick at any time of year. You can borrow litter-picking equipment and we can arrange for the bags of litter to be collected after your event.

We will need to know:

  • your name and contact details
  • the name of school, voluntary group, charity, or business you are applying on behalf of (if applicable)
  • the date you would like to litter pick (so we can check if the equipment is available)
  • the location of where the litter picking will take place

We will ask you to complete a risk assessment as part of your application, to make sure everyone stays safe, and will provide you with guidance on how to make sure your event goes smoothly.

Call us on 01246 345345 to find out more.
