How to litter pick safely

The health and safety of our volunteers is a top priority. To litter pick safely, follow the below guidance:

  • stick to pavements, paths and walkways
  • do not litter-pick near carriageways or roads that do not have a footpath
  • follow social distancing guidelines
  • wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Join Keep Britain Tidy and our community of volunteers on our #MillionMileMission to clear litter from our streets, parks and beaches. What is good for our environment is good for our mental and physical health.
