Community litter picking

Borrow our litter picking equipment and join in with the Great British Spring Clean!

Join the Great British Spring Clean

Great British Spring Clean
To show that we love where we live, why not join a clean up in your neighbourhood, or find out how to organise one! Organised by the Keep Britain Tidy campaign, The Great British Spring Clean runs from 20 March to 13 April.

Every little bit helps when it comes to tidying up our streets, parks and shared green spaces, so get in touch to borrow our litter picking equipment and organise a clean up!

Borrowing litter picking equipment

Community litter picking events are a great way to tackle those areas of litter that you and your neighbours wish to bag up and bin. The events are a good show of teamwork, involve a range of age groups and help bring together your community.

Every volunteer involved will be given a set of equipment including a litter picker, a high visibility vest, rubbish bags, gloves and safety guidance. (Equipment is limited to 25 sets per group in times of high demand.) We can also arrange to collect the bagged rubbish from an agreed location after your event.

All loaned equipment will require collection from our Woking Road Depot. The equipment should be returned promptly following your event.

If you would like to request the loan of equipment for a community event, please complete our online form and we will contact you to confirm equipment availability and further details. We will need notice two weeks in advance of the date of the litter pick.
