Join a community clean up

Community and local groups play a vital role in keeping our towns, villages and countryside clean and tidy.

A local clean up is a great way to improve your neighbourhood and gets everyone in your community together.

If you are having a community clean up, or want to take part in one, please get in touch via our dedicated number on 0300 300 1375 which operates between 11am-10pm (Sun-Thurs) and 1pm-12am (Fri/Sat).

If you would like to coordinate your own community clean up please contact us and we will provide you with:

  • waste bags
  • litter pickers
  • Team Up to Clean Up bibs
  • protective gloves
  • graffiti removal kits (where required)
  • and we will remove all of the litter after it has been collected.

IMPORTANT: Needles/Dangerous items (Sharps)
Please note that members of public, or Clean Up Teams should NOT pick up needles or glass.  If a needle is found, please contact the Wardens Service on 0300 300 0300 detailing the location and they will arrange for safe removal. Anything you consider to be potentially dangerous should not be collected and the Wardens should be informed.

Litter picking at certain locations may be dangerous so please ensure that you have considered the steps that you need to take to keep volunteers safe. Remember you may need to seek approval of the landowners before carrying out a clean up.
