Community Clean Ups

We can loan litter pickers and equipment for clean up events in your community

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, and following advice from Keep Britain Tidy, we are cancelling any bookings of litter picking kits. Please consider rescheduling your clean up event for the new campaign period in September.


If you are organising a community litter pick for The Great British Spring Clean, we can provide litter picking equipment to help you carry out your clean up event.

We also supply black sacks for the litter and will arrange to collect the rubbish at the end of the clean-up.
