Birchwood Litter Network
Introducing "Birchwood Litter Network" - your community-run resource for reporting and volunteering to clean up litter problems in our amazing area!
Spotted a litter problem? Simply post on the "Birchwood Litter Network" Facebook group with as much info as you can - ideally including a description of the problem and where to find it, perhaps photos, and a map / what3words location.
Cleaned up some litter? Simply comment on the post it was reported on, or if your own ad-hoc route (perhaps your daily exercise route?), then please do let us know via a new post (again on the "Birchwood Litter Network" group) the route / area you've cleaned so others know it may not need doing again for a while (or that it may need checking again soon!)
If you are interested in taking part we recommend you have at least a picker / grabber, hi-vis, strong gloves and bin bags - safety first every time. For entry-level kit Home Bargains and B&M Bargains are always worth a look, as is Amazon online (other suppliers are available - these are just a few handy examples). For pro-quality kit check out industry-standard HH Environmental online. We at times have free kit available also, so it is well worth asking!
All volunteers undertake litter picking at their own risk and neither the "Litter Networks" organisation nor the nominal leaders of the "Birchwood Litter Network" communication resource are in any way liable for any injury or illness that may be caused or triggered by related activities. You will find helpful and important safety information on our Knowledge - Safety Advice page.
Whether you are an individual, household or community group – we would love for you to join in our network!
