Street cleaning

Volunteer Litter Picking

This year we are supporting The Great British Spring Clean taking place between the 28th May – 13th June 2021. As outdoor gatherings of up to 30 people is now permitted, residents now have the opportunity to borrow a maximum of 30 sets of equipment including litter pickers and hi-vis vests. Due to limited stock, equipment will be issued on a first come basis.

To register your interest, please contact us on and an officer will respond directly to discuss further. For further information on The Great British Spring Clean and how you can get involved, please visit the Keep Britain Tidy website.
