We are happy to support litter picks and can lend you litter picking equipment to help.  We can also advise on safety if required

If you are organising a litter pick, please give us advance warning, typically 5 days, so that we can organise the collection.

Please also let us know if you plan to involve the media at the earliest opportunity. 

Where you can pick litter

Litter can only be picked from:

  • pavements
  • verges 
  • adjoining public land

No collections should be made directly from households, from the road or in other potentially unsafe areas.  

Collecting the waste

Litter (except large items) should be bagged and bags tied securely when completed.  Please leave collections safely and tidily in the location agreed with us in advance.

Please contact us to organise removal of dangerous eg hypodermic needles, drugs waste, chemicals and asbestos. Do not touch them.
