Broadland Community Clear up

Getting involved

The district and parish Councils are working together with Veolia Environmental Services to make sure volunteers wanting to litter pick in their area have access to equipment across Broadland. We are extremely lucky to have a number of amazing groups who regularly conduct community clear up litter picks.

How do I book litter picking equipment?

Contact your nearest loan organisation to see if the equipment is available well in advance of your planned activity, as certain times of the year can get very popular.

What equipment can I borrow?

Litter picking sticks and high-visibility vests (hi-vis). Any equipment borrowed should be returned in good order and any problems with the equipment highlighted to the organisation you have borrowed it from.

Where can my group litter pick?

Groups normally litter pick public footpaths and verges in their area.

If you’d like to litter pick your local parish parks, speak to the Parish Council about this.

You should not clear any private land as this is the responsibility of the landowner. Private land would include fields, gardens, private parks and car parks. You should always have the consent of the landowner to go onto private property, and the landowner will be responsible for disposing of any litter you collect.
