Litter Pick Week (25-31 July 2020)

Monday, 6 July 2020 07:08

Egham Residents’ Association invites you, as households, families or groups of neighbours to get

together to Litter Pick on your road – or part of your road. We are co-ordinating this Litter Pick Week

to support St John’s Egham Eco – Festival that is running this month.

The plan is to form your “group” and choose a time during the week for your Litter Pick. We will draw

up a timetable of litter picking and post it on our Facebook Page.

We will arrange for pickers and heavy-duty gloves to be delivered to you in time for the pick.

We would encourage all Litter Pick Groups to advertise that they are joining in by creating a poster and

putting it in their window(s) – like with the COVID19 Rainbows. We will also publish your poster on

Facebook in a Litter Pick album.

On the day of the Litter Pick, if possible, please take Before and After photos. We’ll put these in the

Album too so that we can celebrate your achievement – and encourage others to join in.

We hope that families will enjoy taking part. It doesn’t matter how big or small your Litter Pick patch

is. Every piece of litter picked up is one less to pollute and endanger the environment.

The Litter Pick Week will be followed by the Great British September Clean, as part of World Clean Up

Day, on 19th September - when ERA is arranging an Egham-wide litter pick.
