Community Litter Picking Form

We are now able to loan out our litter picking equipment, this is on a first come first served basis. We can also still collect litter collected by groups that follow our guidance (in the documents section).

It is important you advise us in advance (using the form below) of any litter picking activities so we can arrange the removal of bags as soon as possible. Bags left for collection without advance booking may be mistaken for fly tipping.

To ensure we are able to collect the bags resulting from your activity in a timely manner, please complete the below form to request use of East Hertfordshire District Council's equipment for a community litter pick event. 

Once you have completed this form it will be sent to the waste management team and an officer will contact you to confirm your request.

We can also provide an option for you to 'Adopt an Area' to keep litter free. You can find out more on our Adopt an Area page. 

If you are unable to use this form, please see our Contact Us (this link opens in a new window) for ways of getting in touch.

Location of waste to be collected (where we will collect the rubbish you have picked up) if you are collecting small volumes of litter regular, please consider whether this could be included in your refuse and recycling collections. This will reduce the need for us to send vehicles out specifically to collect this litter.
