Get Involved in Daventry Town Councils Litter Picking Scheme


Daventry Town Council wants to make a difference to the environment in our town by backing the Keep Britain Tidy: Great British September Clean Campaign which runs from, 11- 27 September 2020.

In addition, we are launching our own scheme, hosting once a month Saturday litter picking mornings in targeted areas within Daventry. We are asking local residents to pledge an hour of their time and join us on these picks. Litter blights our streets and parks and so with residents support we want to inspire people to eliminate litter now and for future generations.

Already we have received a great response from local residents and community groups who want to get involved and become ‘Litter Heroes’ and we would love to see families of all ages join us on the scheduled litter picks too.

The Mayor of Daventry Cllr Lynne Taylor is very happy to launch this scheme noting: “I am very passionate about tackling litter issues in Daventry and want to help improve the environment on everyone’s doorstep. If we spotlight problem areas within the town, we hope to make a difference in changing behaviour permanently”

The litter pick walks will be led by our Community Ranger Charlotte Jones who will have planned a short route for all volunteers to follow and will ensure that it is social distancing appropriate. The safety of all volunteers is paramount to us.

All equipment required such as pick up sticks, gloves, binbags and hand gel will be provided by Daventry Town Council.

To register interest in advance please email: [email protected]

Alternatively, please check our website and social media profiles for regular updates on each months’ litter pick hotspot and feel free to turn up on the scheduled day.
