In response to the increased litter levels as lock-down rules start to be lifted, some of you have told us that you are ready to start litter-picking again. We also know that many of you are still not comfortable to litter-pick again yet.  We do not in any way want to make anyone feel as though they should be back out there if they are not ready. However, we DO want to support anyone who is choosing to litter-pick right now.  You can now meet outside in a group of up to 30 people.  Please see the Government guidelines for further details https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

West Wight Litter Pickers

To join this group please create an account or login

The Isle of Wight is one of the prettiest parts of the country - but some areas are scarred by litter. We hope to meet up for occasional litter picks of footpaths and beaches in the western half of our lovely island. Many hands make light work, so please join us and make a difference.

Sopwell Litter Pickers
Hi, I'm Holly and I'm starting out litter picking to help make the area I live in cleaner and more attractive. I walk to work some days and I always marvel at how much rubbish there is, especially after bin collection days and it stays on the streets for weeks, so I wanted to do something about it! Alone but hopefully not for long, I have started picking litter in my area to make it a cleaner and more enjoyable place for everyone. I hope as I get more experience at this I can rally together the troops to start a regular litter picking group to help out and clean up Sopwell! If you'd be interested in joining me, you can send me an email to meet up and arrange a litter picking date. Tel. 07857 944 443 Email. Cleanupsopwell@outlook.com

Lewes Little Gardens
Lewes Little Gardens is a group of volunteers who undertake litterpicks, tidy-ups and plantings around the town of Lewes. We raise funds for our planting work and to buy litterpicking tools from recycling aluminium drinks cans from local works canteens and small grants such as the Action Earth £50 grants each year, and also get some help from donations from local people. The group started as a BTCV Natural Pioneer project to get gardening into local schools more and still works with local schools to help provide gardening materials. We have at least one litterpick or other event every month and advertise these locally in a newsletter that goes out to about two thirds of the houses in Lewes, and sometimes in the Parish Pump section of the local paper. We work with local residents groups and lend out our litterpickers them if they are organising a litterpick in their road.

Cleaner Northfleet and Highways
I litter pick my local area of Hog Lane and Downs Northfleet Istead Kent. The task is continuous due to the semi-rural roads subject to frequent flytipping and general littering from the local weekend visitors who use the lane as a domestic refuse bin. I have been lobbying our Government, Kent County Council and Highways England to provide a proper litter picking regime for our national strategy motorway and A road network. At the moment, the system is broken and all concerned are in denial about the problem and refuse to acknowledge change. There is a really good website owned and managed by Peter Silverman who has dedicated his time to challenge Government and Highways England but he needs all our support. This can be achieved simply by leaving any comments about our littered motorways and A roads or just any ideas you may have for change. His website is growing in support and any comments you make will be sent each month to the ministers and Highways England senior management. Please go onto his website and support him with this challenging problem. It is only us, the taxpayers that will make Government listen in the end. The website link is: www.cleanhighways.co.uk

Sandbach Clean Team
The group now has over 100 members. It organises monthly litter picks, and members also litter pick in their own local areas.

An important part of our work is with young people. We have met with Junior schools, Brownies and Cubs, and talked about the reduction of litter and recycling.

We liaise with other environmental groups in the area, particularly those with similar aims to ours and we work closely with the local Borough Council.

We have a website:- www.sandbach-cleanteam.co.uk
