How do I organise my own litter pick event?

Register your event with Keep Scotland Beautiful, who have some useful advice and information to help you organise a successful event.

How do I book a kit?

First you will need to book a kit. When the booking is confirmed, the equipment will then be delivered to the organiser, and collected from them after the litter pick.

Uplift of the bagged rubbish will also be arranged.

Please note due to high demand there may be occasions when we require to restrict the number of kits available for loan to three. On receipt of your booking we will contact you to discuss kit availability.

COVID-19 guidelines

We ask that all our supporters follow the latest advice from Public Health Scotland as well as the guidance below:

  • avoid litter picking in crowded or busy areas
  • wear protective gloves at all times during your litter pick
  • use a litter picker and the bags provided to collect litter (do not use your hands)
  • sanitise the loaned equipment before and after use. Remember that gloves, bags and litter pickers (handle and grabber) all need to be washed
  • ensure you pass on all this information and guidance to your group at ahead of the litter pick. Remind individuals that if they feel unwell they shouldn’t participate
