Community Litter Picking

We are keen to encourage residents, community groups and businesses to assist our street cleaning crews to keep Mole Valley litter free.

Provision of litter picking equipment

Community litter picking events are a good show of teamwork, involve a range of age groups and help bring together your community.

We can supply each volunteer with a set of equipment including

  • a litter-picking stick
  • high-visibility vest
  • rubbish bags
  • gloves

If you would like to request the loan of equipment for a community event, please download and complete the Equipment Request form and then email it to

Please send us your request at least two weeks before your event. We will then contact you to confirm equipment availability and further details.

Please also email to arrange for the bagged litter to be collected after your event

As a small token of appreciation, we offer £1 for every bag of litter collected at your event to a maximum of £45.

This can be claimed for up to two events per financial year. Organisations that hold several smaller events can claim their reward but to reduce administration we ask that you make one claim for the whole year.

Disclaimer: Volunteers should not participate in litter picks unless they understand and accept that participation is entirely at their own risk. Volunteers are not working for, or on behalf of us and therefore we cannot be held liable for any loss, damage or injury caused as a result of the actions and omissions of volunteers.
