Litter picking

Information about how to organise a litter pick including borrowing equipment, plus a list of local groups organising regular community litter picks.

The Suffolk Waste Partnership is keen to support local community efforts to clean up towns, villages and our countryside, to keep Suffolk beautiful. 

Several groups across Suffolk have given their neighbourhoods a spruce-up, making a real difference.

Litter picking:

  • improves the look of an area
  • is a great way to get out and about and meet like-minded members of your local community
  • improves habitats and removes potential hazards for wildlife
  • makes our county somewhere visitors will want to return to.
