Community clean-ups and litter picks

Communities, local groups and businesses play a vital role in keeping our towns, villages and countryside clean and tidy. It makes them a pleasant place for people to live, work and visit.

A local clean-up is a great way to improve your neighbourhood and get everyone in your community together. Everybody can make a contribution, whatever their age or ability.

If you are a local business, getting customers and staff involved in a community clean-up is also a great way to show your business cares about the local community.

"Meet Up, Clean-Up" is a campaign that brings the Council, residents and neighbourhoods together in a joint effort to eliminate litter on our streets and parks and help restore pride in our towns and villages. If you are planning a community clean-up in your area, fill out our community clean-up request form using the link below and we will provide you with all the equipment you need for a successful event including:

  • waste bags
  • litter pickers
  • disposable gloves
  • a skip (only in certain circumstances)

We will uplift all of the litter after it has been collected!
