litter-picking

The New Forest Spring Clean is part of the Great British Spring Clean, a national campaign led by Keep Britain Tidy.

We can help community groups who want to spend a few hours litter picking for the New Forest , whether it’s a beach clean or a tidy up of your local neighbourhood, park or school.

We can provide:

  • litter grabbers
  • rubbish sacks (and clear recycling sacks if you would like to recycle some of that litter)
  • collection of the rubbish after your event
  • posters to advertise your event

To request support for your event, download and complete the registration form below and return it to wasteandrecycling@nfdc.gov.uk and we’ll be in touch to confirm your event.

Please note that equipment for the 2-4 March will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

If you would like more information please email wasteandrecycling@nfdc.gov.uk or call us on 023 8028 5000 and we’ll be happy to help.
