Community litter picks

Do you want to organise a community litter pick?

We can loan the tools you need to spruce up your neighbourhood or open spaces.

Litter picks are the perfect opportunity to venture down to your local open space, woodland, canal, and park and help us to keep it clean and green.

What can you do?

  • Litter picking
  • Cut back winter vegetation
  • Prepare floral beds and landscape areas for summer planting
  • Start planting early season varieties e.g. Incredible Edible
  • Jet wash flags / pavements
  • Apply early weed treatments
  • Remove moss growth from street furniture
  • Re-paint weathered surfaces.

Get involved

If you are a member of a community group and/or would like to organise a community litter pick, contact us.
