Community litter picking

We are keen to encourage residents, community groups and businesses to assist our street cleaning crews to keep our borough litter free.

Great British Spring Clean

If you would like to take part in the Great British Spring Clean, which runs from 22 March to 23 April, please complete our community litter picking form below. You need to allow two weeks' notice for your request, as there is a high demand for litter picking equipment while this campaign is taking place.

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.
