Every year hundreds of volunteers across Suffolk mobilise to give an area they love a well-deserved spring clean. If you love where you live and hate litter you may like to join the forces against litter and help make a real difference to your neighbourhood.
A quick litter pick can really improve the local community, is fun and gets people active outside, and so satisfying as the results are instant. It’s a great way to meet up with friends and neighbours to arrange a group pick. We can assist with litter pick kit by either gifting a kit to your area, or by putting you in touch with a neighbouring parish who already hold one of our kits, and arrange to collect the bagged litter afterwards, so why not make a difference this spring.
Whatever you can do is really appreciated. You choose a day and time to suit.
You may be aware of the national Community Clear up Weekend being promoted by the government, which was March 3-5. Find out more about it and what happened at: www.greatbritishspringclean.org.uk/home/2684
However, we in Suffolk would welcome events at any time of year and would be happy to provide our support whenever is most convenient for you. We can either collect the waste generated or arrange for you to take it to your nearest household waste site. Just let us know how we can help.
We would love to welcome you to join our team of local volunteers this year. If you wish to take part in a community litter pick in your area please contact Public Realm on 01449 724946. We would also very much like to receive any feedback, including photographs taken during your activities that you be happy to be used to promote the on-going Spring Clean Suffolk campaign.
Thank you to all the groups who have already given us details of their community litter pick events and also to those of you who litter pick all year round. Your continued support is much appreciated.
