Volunteer litter picking scheme

There are volunteer litter picker schemes taking place throughout the city. If you, your school or local community group would like to work alongside local communities to carry out voluntary litter picking, then we can help you by providing litter picking equipment and arranging the disposal of the litter collected.

We would encourage groups to purchase their own equipment should they anticipate this being a regular event. This initiative has been set up to encourage communities to work together to eliminate litter in their area.

To find out more or to become a volunteer litter picker please complete the online form. A member of the Waste Prevention Team will contact you to confirm your booking within two working days of receiving your request.

Volunteer to become a litter picker

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.
