Community Clean Ups

We can provide equipment for your own community clean-up

We are committed to keeping Dover district clean, so if you spot a problem with cleanliness please report it to us first.  

Community clean-ups make a special contribution to the environment but do not replace our daily cleaning schedules.

  • Litter picking can only take place on roads up to 30mph and public footpaths/areas (not private land) where it is safe to do so

We lend out, free of charge, community clean up kits which contain:

  • litter pickers
  • protective gloves
  • hi-viz tabards
  • large grey bags

The kits can be collected from our offices at Whitfield and returned the day after the event.

  • We are unable to supply equipment and collect from events such as fetes as this is commercial waste
  • If you separate cans and plastics for recycling, we will pick it up and recycle it for you
  • We can only collect litter that has been bagged up and are unable to collect any large items of dumped rubbish
  • We will arrange a collection point and clearance at a suitable time to suit your event
  • You must carry out your own risk assessment for the safety of the event. We will ask for the Risk Assessment when you collect the equipment.
  • See below a bad and good example
