LITTER PICKS, RIVER CLEANS AND BEACH CLEANS
GREAT FOR YOUR MIND, BODY AND THE PLANET
Getting out in the fresh air with our litter pickers and going for a walk is at the core of what we do and the more people we can encourage to come along with us the better.
Joining us on one of our organised FREE public events or hiring us to organise a bespoke litter pick or beach clean for your business or group has mutliple benefits…
HELP THE PLANET
Before we go on it’s worth remembering – Litter picks and beach cleans are not the solution in the fight against single-use plastics, litter and waste. They are not the end game. They are a tool. A band aid. A great way of engaging with an audience to highlight the real issues of over consumption and our throwaway culture. A great way to build/unite communities.
TYPES OF WALKS
STREET LITTER PICKS
We organise regular litter picks in towns and villages across Suffolk including Ipswich, Woodbridge, Felixstowe and beyond. We cover streets, parks and other public spaces.
We also incorporate time in green spaces wherever possible. It’s amazing how much wildlife you spot when you are out litter picking.
If we tackle the litter in our towns we can prevent it from reaching our rivers.
If you would like us to organise a litter pick in your area then get in touch.
We hold regular river cleans along the Orwell and Gipping in and around Ipswich and find LOTS of litter (and other debris).
If litter finds it’s way into our rivers it’s highly likely to find it’s way to the oceans.
Our walks are not just about the litter. We take time to breath and take in the stunning wildlife and scenery too.
Come and join us on an early morning river clean along the Deben at Woodbridge and marvel at the incredible saxon sunrises over Sutton Hoo or the stunning views from under the Orwell Bridge.
Come and join us on one of our beach cleans along the fabulous Suffolk coast.
From Lowestoft, the most easterly beach in the UK, to Landguard Point Felixstowe, the busiest container port in the UK.
Every piece of litter we pick up on our beaches is one less piece in the ocean.
We try to visit every Suffolk beach at least once a year.
And remember – there’s always treasure in the trash. We take time to notice the natural treasures too. Fossils, amber, shells and sea glass.
* We provide all equipment – Litter pickers, bag rings, bags, gloves, hi-vis vest etc. We also carry out risk assessments and carry other safety equipment such as sharps bin and first aid kit.
We love to collaborate with local and national groups to support their campaigns too. If you would like to collaborate or need help organising your first event feel free to get in touch .
Organising a litter pick or beach clean event for your business or group can be quite time consuming, especially if you want to do it safely and effectively. There are lots of things to plan and think about. For example – location, health & safety, risk assessments, equipment, leading the event on the day, registering with your local authority if needed etc.
Save the time and stress and let us do it all for you. Prices start from £120 for up to 20 participants. And remember – Rubbish Walks is a social enterprise. All profits are used to fund new and ongoing projects in our local community. Every bespoke event booked will also pay for a school assembly visit by one of the Rubbish walks team. That’s great for your business, great for the local community and great for the environment too.
