Equipment available for Wealden litter-picking volunteers

Volunteers wanting to take part in this year’s Great British Spring Clean from May 28 to June 13 are being offered support by Wealden Council and waste contractor Biffa.

Litter picking equipment and waste sacks can be supplied and the litter you pick can be collected if you let the council know you would like to get involved.

Please email springclean@wealden.gov.uk giving your name, address and the proposed area you would like to litter pick.

The council says priority for new equipment will be given to any new groups volunteering and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis but the waste sacks and waste collection services are available to all groups.

Wealden has supported the initiative for the past five years and says volunteer litter pickers have been very active in the district in the past year alone, collecting well in excess of 1,500 bags of litter.
