Autumn Litter Blitz results 2023

Our awesome autumnal litter pickers did an exceptional job during this year’s Autumn Litter Blitz.

From 16 October – 13 November, we saw residents and businesses from all over the city banding together to help keep Bristol looking its best. Overall, volunteers completed a huge 79 litter picks – that’s nearly three litter picks a day!

We want to give a huge thanks to all the volunteers who have borrowed litter picking gear from us and collected a record amount of litter. Let’s check this year’s results to see how we faired.

Do you want to try litter picking in Bristol?

It’s not too late! We loan litter picking equipment throughout the year to help everybody get involved. Complete this form and borrow litter picking sticks, hi-viz and bags. We’ll even come and pick up your bagged litter after you have collected it.

Alternatively, you can join the 20 litter picking groups that we support in Bristol. Or, you sign your company up to the Big Tidy pledge to start organising staff litter picks. Last year, the Bristol Bears kicked off their pledge with one of the largest litter picks yet!

It’s never too late to give litter picking a go. Book your kit and get picking!
