Everything you need to start litter picking in Bristol and help keep the city shipshape and Bristol fashion.
Let's get litter picking!
Have you ever thought about getting together with your neighbours, family or friends to do a community litter pick? Whether you’re flying solo or in a group, you can be a clean streets hero and help keep our city shipshape and Bristol fashion.
Litter picks should always be carried out in line with the latest government guidance.
At the moment that means litter picking alone, in pairs or in small groups up to a maximum of 6 people. We can supply up to 6 litter picking sticks and high visibility tabards, lots of bags and a hoop to help keep the bags open.
Litter picking can be a rewarding solo activity or a fun way to meet your neighbours and get involved with the community whilst maintaining physical distancing. There are dozens of established litter picking groups across the city with new ones popping up all the time.
The Autumn Litter Blitz is on!
Overlapping with the national Keep Britain Tidy Great British September Clean, the Bristol Autumn Litter Blitz will see dozens of litter picks happening across the city to help keep our shared space clean and green. Find out how to join in with a fun, safe and physically distanced litter pick.Join in the Autumn Litter Blitz
