Community litter pick pack

District councils are normally responsible for the collection of litter on public land.

If you want to organise a community/group litter picking event then please read through our litter pack below which contains useful and practical information to help you plan a litter pick or beach clean in your local area.

Please ensure that you discuss your arrangements for the disposal/recycling of the waste you collect with the local district council or landowner before the event takes place.

During the ongoing Coronavirus epidemic, please ensure that your litter picking event has appropriate safety measures in place e.g. physical distancing and limited groups sizes in line with current government guidelines. In addition to the litter pack advice, please view guidance from Keep Britain Tidy.
