Volunteer litter picks

Organising a litter pick within Aylesbury Vale?

Buckinghamshire Council is committed to supporting local groups in keeping communities and neighbourhood clean and tidy. The council offers a range of support to communities planning litter picking events. We loan litter pickers, bags, high-vis tabards and gloves (subjected to availability). We also arrange to collect the litter collected and dispose of it.

Bags of litter collected and not reported can sometimes be mistaken as fly-tipping, so please do tell us in advance of your litter picking activities (no matter how big or small) so we can organise the collection of bags and keep track of all the fantastic community efforts happening in this area.

To request a litter picking kit or arrange a litter picking event, please email the Streetscene team with the following information:

  • Your name, address and contact details
  • Equipment required
  • Date you would like to collect the kit and the date you will be returning it.
  • date of event, location of event and location of waste for collection.

Please note: We can only offer removal of bagged litter that has been collected from public land. We cannot remove waste that was collected from private land. Please do not attempt to remove hazardous or fly-tipped waste, but instead please report it via our Streetscene team.

Unfortunately we are currently unable to separate the waste for recycling.

Remember to share your photographs and stories of your event with us!

Tag us in your social media posts @BucksCouncil and use the hashtag #LoveYourVale. Alternatively you can email Streetscene with your photos.
