Community Litter Picks

We welcome requests from the community to host their own litter picks in our parks, helping to keep Milton Keynes Parks tidy.

There are a few things we ask any groups wishing to host litter picks in their local area. All group community litter picks  taking place in the parks are required to be covered by public liability insurance (often your local parish council maybe happy to cover this), and all litter picks must be covered by a risk assessment.

We can often help with loaning of equipment for groups for a small deposit (litter pickers and hoops) and removal of collected litter but this is dependent on availability of equipment and our Community Ranger Team.


How to apply

To apply to host a community litter pick in one of our parks:

  1. Read the Community Litter Pick Guidance  

  2. Contact the Events Team at The Parks Trust on 01908 233600 or to discuss proposed event, date and location.

  3. The team will then assess your proposal and be in touch with any questions and a small form to complete.
