As an organiser of a community group you need to recruit people to join your litter pick. Here are some suggestions.

  • Door to door leaflets – you can download and print an A5 leaflet and distribute these in neighbourhoods that you think are most likely to respond to your appeal
  • Posters – you can download, personalise and print a poster for displaying within your neighbourhood – schools, community centres, shops
  • Word of mouth – encourage people who are already part of the group to put the word about when they meet up with neighbours – book clubs, mother and baby groups
  • Make it Fun 1 – fix up a social event after the litter-pick – eg bring and share picnic
  • Make it Fun 2 – get local businesses (eg shops, pubs) to support you by eg supplying hot drinks
