Community Litter Picks

There are currently over 100 groups and the same amount of individuals carrying out litter picks across the districts.  This might be Spring and Autumn organised events, weekly organised picks or on an ad-hoc basis as and when time allows.


Whatever time you are able to give the councils are keen to support your endeavours and will either gift kit to be shared with neighbouring groups or will arrange for the loan of the appropriate resource.


We can provide bags and will arrange for the waste generated to be collected in the following week.  Please look at our guidance notes to make sure you litter pick safely.

Guidance for litter pickers  

If you would like to take part in a group litter pick it is always worth contacting your town or parish clerk as there may already be an established group in your area.  If, however, you would like to complete litter picking individually on a regular basis please let us know and we will make sure you have the appropriate kit and support.

To register your interest in litter picking please contact the Public Realm Team


Why take part in a community litter pick?

  • By joining a local group you will be meeting like minded people and getting to know your neighbours, harnessing local support for clearing up litter
  • You will be taking action on an issue that you care about
  • You will be out in the fresh air, getting exercise whilst giving something back to the community
  • Ultimately you will be living in a nicer, cleaner and better looking environment once a few picks have taken place

No one is excluded as we can all do something, whoever we are, to make where we live a better place.
