Organising a Group Litter Pick

Litter pick Hazeley Wood_08.jpg

We welcome requests from businesses, community groups and schools to host their own litter picks in Milton Keynes' parks to help keep our city clean.

There are a few things we ask any groups wishing to host litter picks in their local area. All group litter picks taking place in the parks are required to be covered by public liability insurance (often your local parish council maybe happy to cover this), and all litter picks must be covered by a risk assessment.

We can often help with the loaning of equipment for groups for a small deposit (litter pickers and hoops) and removal of collected litter, but this is dependent on the availability of equipment and our Community Ranger Team.

If you have a small group of people of less than 6 people who want to take part in a litter pick, you can also join on to one of our community litter picks. Please email us on for more information.

How to apply
