Voluntary Litter Picking Events

For more occasional litter picking events, we can provide the equipment you may need. Equipment which is available includes:

  • Litter picking sticks
  • High visibility vests
  • Disposable gloves
  • Refuse sacks

The equipment will be delivered to a designated address before your community litter pick and will be collected from there afterwards. Also, our mechanical road sweeper can be requested to help support your event, if available on that day. If you are interested in organising such an event, please contact customer services using the general enquiries form.

Litter Picking Collection

If possible, we request that you add your collected litter to your domestic waste. If this is not possible, please complete the collection request form. Any waste collected by your volunteers will be removed from your designated location as soon as possible after the event.

Litter Picking Safety

Please utilise the Guidance Notes available in the Downloads section and delivered in your packs to ensure you remain safe whilst collecting litter.
