Community clean ups and litter picks


Is there a local area near you that you would like to improve? It is really easy to get involved with a local community clean up and make a real difference to your local environment. We can provide advice and support to help you with the clean up.

First of all, you need to choose your location. It could be:

  • an area in the town;
  • a local park;
  • a beach;
  • a pathway, or
  • any area that’s become a local eyesore.

Get a group of volunteers together and contact our Safer Communities team for an information pack.

This will contain:

  • an application form;
  • an insurance questionnaire;
  • a safety guide for organisers and participants;
  • skip loading guide, and
  • Weil's disease (Leptospirosis) advice.

Complete and send us the application form and the Zurich Municipal Insurance Form by emailing

As well as removing the litter collected by your efforts, we can provide you with:

  • black bags;
  • skips (if you require);
  • litter-pickers;
  • gloves, and
  • liability insurance.
