The Great Plastic Pick Up

Calling all local community groups and community minded individuals.

The Keep Britain Tidy group are launching their national campaign, the Great Plastic Pick Up, with the aim of bringing together people to help clear litter to improve their local environment.

The official dates of the Great Plastic Pick Up are 11 May to 13 May, although events could still take place after this weekend

The Joint Waste Team can provide support for groups volunteering in the Wycombe district. We can loan litter pickers, provide rubbish sacks and provide a collection of the waste / recycling picked. Please note that only bagged waste / recycling will be collected at a pre-agreed location. We are unable to collect bulky materials.

To request help and support, please complete our online litter pick form [external website]

Please note

It is the borrower's responsibility to ensure the health and safety of all participants, which includes providing your own protective equipment.

It is the borrower's responsibility to conduct risk assessments as part of the event preparation.

We would not encourage volunteers to work within close proximity of main roads for their own safety.

More information can be found on the Great Plastic Pick up website [external website].

Equipment loaned must be collected from and returned to the Chiltern District Council Office
