THE UK'S FIRST VINTAGE LITTER MUSEUM

THE place to explore why littering is so bad for the environment... and what we can do about it.

Litter is obviously not something to celebrate but we can use it as a valuable resource to encourage people to change their habits. That’s why we created the VINTAGE LITTER MUSEUM.

All items in the main collection have genuinely been found during litter picks and beach cleans around Suffolk and date from 1999 or earlier.

 

OUR MISSION

 All displays and activities are designed to answer the following questions… What is litter? Why do people litter? Where does litter go (when dropped on the ground/put in a bin)? Who is responsible for… dropping it? Picking it up? And how can we stop it happening?

VIRTUAL COLLECTION

Can’t make it to the museum? Check out our VIRTUAL COLLECTION instead.

We would obviously love to see you at the museum and we guarantee you’d enjoy your visit but we understand that you may live too far away to visit us in Woodbridge, but…

 

DON'T WORRY!

We’ve put together a selection of items from the museum to create our ‘VIRTUAL COLLECTION’. Explore the 50+ years old crisp packets, long lost brands from the 80s, sweet wrappers older than your gran, drinks cans from when the Bay City Rollers were topping the charts and lots more.

 

Would you like your vintage litter find included in the museum?

We hope to build an interesting and useful resource for all to share and enjoy so we are constantly on the look out for new additions to the museum. 

There are two ways your old litter can be featured – you can send us the item to include in the physical collection or you can send us an image and details to feature in the virtual collection.*

* Our main focus is to build a comprehensive physical collection of litter. However, we understand that you may wish to keep your item for your own collection/mini museum. As with any museum we think its important that all  collections remain unique as this will add interest and variety for the visitor/viewer, therefore we ask that any submitted items of litter for the ‘virtual collection’ should not be part of any other existing virtual litter collection.
