GPWRA Litter Pick to resume soon

#LoveGWP – Litter picking events to resume soon.

In line with COVID-19 government guidelines litter picks have been suspended around GWP area.

We are now able to arrange small group picks (6), in partnership with the South and Vale Waste Team.

The first pick has been scheduled for Saturday 3rd April (10-12), unfortunately we can only have a group size of 6 so there are not spaces available this time round.

For anyone else who wishes to get involved in litter picking please contact the Waste team directly and provide them with booking form/details. They will loan equipment and arrange collections with you directly.

We are hopeful, in line with COVID-19 guidelines we will soon be able to hold litter picks of groups of 30 hopefully in late May. Please keep an eye on GWPRA site for Facebook events/details or contact Tammi – environment.champion@gwpra.org.uk.

In support with Keep Britain Tidy / Surfers Against Sewage / Planet Patrol and localised initiatives we have created a LoveGWP facebook page to raise awareness of keeping our environments on GWP. Watch this space for further information on waste audits, local school initiatives and bin audits.

Whichever way you decide to do your litter pick please stay safe – please don’t litter pick by busy roads and please follow the guidance from Keep Britain Tidy – and their advice about litter picking and COVID-19 safety advice.
