Community litter picking

If you want to organise a community clean-up, we can support you by providing clean-up equipment, advice for carrying out your clean-up safely, and collecting any rubbish afterwards.

Volunteer to become a litter picker

Litter picking, supporting your community during Covid-19

With Covid-19 currently impacting on how volunteering and litter picking can take place, two easy to follow check sheets for litter picking have been produced with handy tips to keep you safe. If you are an individual looking to litter pick please download our check list. Please follow the training document if you are considering undertaking a community litter pick.

For groups including ‘Friends of Parks Groups’ please see download our group check list.

Always follow the latest government guidance on Covid-19. Please refer to the government website:

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. Litter Action provide advice on insurance to cover your clean up.
