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!
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!
