Join our Community Clean Team

We are asking individuals, community groups, schools and businesses to take collective responsibility for keeping the Borough clean and tidy and encourage everyone to recycle more.

If you’d like to organise an event, we can help by loaning equipment.  We will also arrange  the collection of the waste when the event is finished.  

Resource pack

You can also download our useful resource pack (.pdf) (0.97MB) (Opens in a New Window) which provides everything you need to organise your event including:

  • Checklists for running a litter pick
  • A risk assessments to help ensure you keep safe whilst doing your bit .  (This can be tailored for your group's safety)
  • Posters and social media graphics to use to promote the fantastic work you’re doing
  • Template press releases for you to use to promote your event

Promote your events

Don’t forget to let us know what you’re doing so we can promote it for you too. You can do this by emailing our Communications Team on  

If you’d like to organise an event, contact our Waste and Recycling Team.  Once the details are set, we can loan you the equipment and we will  send you a Covid-19 risk assessment for your event.  Together, we can make Broxtowe a cleaner and greener place to live.
