I think that we did a fine job of picking bottles, cans, food packaging and wet wipes out of hedges and off pavements, and removing small bits of plastic from grassy areas. We know how to spend a Saturday morning!

The Great British Spring Clean

This year, Sustainable Merton once again participated in the Great British Spring Clean - the country's biggest mass-action environmental campaign.

Merton's #WasteWarriors were once again ready to do their bit! With litter pickers in hand, residents came together across the borough to clean up our streets and protect our rivers and oceans from litter and plastic pollution.

Sustainable Merton hosted its litter pick in Mitcham, targeting an area particularly in need of some attention. Our Community Champions (pictured below) did a great job!

But our work is not done there! Support your regular local litter pick to do your bit in your community and help keep Merton, and Britain, tidy,

Hosting a litter pick in your local area? 

Tell us about it and we will feature your clean up on our website so that others can join you!
