You can request a range of equipment to help with your community clean-up events - we have litter pickers, rakes, graffiti kits, first aid kits, brooms and much more!

Disclaimer: Volunteers should not participate in litter picks unless they understand and accept that participation is entirely at their own risk. Volunteers are not working for, or on behalf of Birmingham City Council and therefore the Council cannot be held liable for any loss, damage or injury caused as a result of the actions and omissions of volunteers. You may want to consider insurance cover for your clean-up, find advice at https://litteraction.org.uk/infocentre/insurance
