Community litter picks

You will be working in areas across Wyre, including town centres, parks and open spaces, with the aim of creating independent groups which will meet regularly to carry out litter picks.

Keeping Wyre litter free is an ongoing task. There will always be public or privately owned land where litter gathers faster than expected, so we welcome the support of individuals and local communities who are keen to help improve the quality of their local area.

You will be:

  • patrolling open spaces, town centres or parks for litter
  • helping make your local area cleaner
  • supporting clean-up's after large events

No powered machinery is involved, and you will be provided with all the necessary equipment.

Work in this role may be physically demanding but rewarding - this is a great opportunity to get outdoors, be active and contribute to making your local area cleaner and greener.

  • helping with various research projects for future events
