Litter Picking

If you would like to help keep your local area clean and free from litter, then it couldn't be easier to get involved! On this page you'll find details of local groups who hold community litter picks, as well as details of upcoming litter picking events around the district.

Lewes and Eastbourne councils are pleased to offer free advice and equipment for residents and community groups who would like to join in with litter picking in their local area. We can provide litter pickers, gloves, bags (disposable ones, as well as reusable bags for recyclable litter), advice on Health and Safety, and help risk-assessing your event.
