Litter pick advice
For up-to-date advice about litter picking during the Coronavirus outbreak please see the UK government advice. Always complete a risk assessment before holding a litter pick.
Borrow litter pick kits
MK Council has many litter pick kits held in the community for hire free of charge. These are not held centrally, butin the community making it easier and more convenient to access. Check our Litter Pick Holders List (PDF, 186KB) to find the one nearest to you.
