Working with the local community, schools and community groups this council run initiative helps reduce litter and improves the appearance of the district, ensuring that South Norfolk remains one of the best places in the country to live, work and visit.
Last year a record total of 82 litter picks took place involving over 900 residents from across the district and nearly 2,000 bags of rubbish and recycling were collected and this year we are hoping to do even better.
From 1st February to the end of May, any parish, community group or not-for-profit organisation that registers and completes a litter pick will receive £20 for their local community and will be placed in a draw to win one of 20 prizes of £200 for use in their community!
South Norfolk Council will provide the necessary equipment and instructions, all groups need to do is register their interest, advertise for volunteers and then complete the litter pick. For more information visit www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/ litterpick
If you are interested in taking part, please contact us through the email: ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ or call on 01603 533641. We will then send you out an information pack to enable you to organise and advertise your litter pick.
