Great Plastic Pick Up 2018
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 May 11 to May 13, although events could still take place after this weekend
If you wish to organise your own clean up, please register on the main campaign website
The Joint Waste Team can provide support for groups volunteering in the Chiltern 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.
Volunteers can request support using our online form
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 Keep Britain Tidy's website
Equipment loaned must be collected from and returned to either the Chiltern District Council office in Amersham or the South Bucks District Council office in Denham.
