Council supporting litter picking events

Wiltshire Council is supporting communities to carry out organised litter picks in areas covered by Salisbury, Amesbury, Southern and South West Wiltshire Area Boards.

Wiltshire Council is supporting community groups to carry out organised litter picking events in line with the Great British Spring Clean guidance. However, the ‘if you didn't drop it, don't pick it up' advice from Public Health England remains in place for casual, non-organised litter picking in the Salisbury, Amesbury, South West Wiltshire and Southern Area Board areas.  

If a community group has an event arranged, they are encouraged to contact their local Community Engagement Manager with details so they can provide specialist litter picking equipment and advice to support the event.

Cllr Bridget Wayman, Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Waste, Wiltshire Council, said: "We want to support our communities if they decide to go ahead with organised events.

"It is important that communities contact the council to ensure we can support their event and provide equipment to volunteers. We hope that community groups will feel supported and that we appreciate the hard work they put in to keep Wiltshire a special place to live and work."

Community groups who have an event booked can contact their Community Engagement Manager at areaboards@wiltshire.gov.uk to ensure their litter pick is supported. All litter picks will need a nominated person who will take responsibility for the event.
