Kit hire

We are offering kits again as long as events are organised in line with the latest government guidance. 

At the moment that means going alone or in pairs. We can supply the 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 groups across the city with new ones popping up all the time.

Share your results

Every bag of litter and minute of your time helps keep our city clean, green and welcoming for everyone. To help us keep the most accurate data, we rely on residents who regularly clean up their area to keep us updated on their progress.

Please take a moment after each of your litter picks to fill out the quick results form.
