Volunteer Litter Picking

Due to the recent changes in Covid 19 guidelines, with effect from the 29th March we have resumed our volunteer litter picking scheme. You are now able to borrow equipment for a maximum of 6 people including Litter pickers and Hi-vis vests. Please be aware volunteers will be required to provide their own gloves.

To register your interest, please contact us on and an officer will respond directly to discuss further.
