Community litter picking – Great British September Clean

In support of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British September Clean, which runs from 11-27 September, Havering Council is offering to loan litter pickers to residents who wish to organise socially distanced community clean-ups.

Residents can obtain further details and book their litter picks in advance by emailing  . The equipment can then be picked up from the Council’s Harrow Lodge Depot in Hornchurch Road. The Council’s street cleaning team will collect the litter following the litter picks.

To ensure that any clean up activity is carried out safely, the Council is recommending no more than 6 people take part in any one activity litter pick and that residents follow the guidelines on keeping safe around COVID-19.

The equipment will be cleaned prior to collection and then cleaned again, upon return ready for the next group or individuals to use.


  1. We pick litter on my area in Stanmore each week. Can I get litter pickers from council ?

    • Dear Pat,

      You would need to contact your local council to answer that question.

      Kind regards

      Cllr John Tyler
