Bristol Waste Company Litter Picking Equipment Loan Agreement

Bristol Waste takes Health and Safety very seriously. Please think carefully about the location of your litter pick and ensure that all participants are briefed and understand the need to act in a safe manner.  Be especially careful near roads and keep a close watch on any children involved.  It is also really important to wear sturdy shoes or boots and not to use your hands to pick up any waste – only use the litter picking sticks provided. We do not provide gloves. Please read the accompanying toolkit as it has lots of good advice to help plan your litter pick safely.

Request Details

Please tick all that you would like to borrow for your event. We shall try to accommodate all requests but, please note, that we have a limited amount of equipment which will be loaned on a first come, first served basis. This may mean there are only a certain quantity per event. The kits will need to be collected from and returned to our depot on Albert Road, Bristol BS2 0XS (please use Gate 1 entrance).

The kits will need to be returned as soon as possible after the event – preferably clean. Please state when you would like to collect and return the equipment.

Agreement

It is the borrower’s responsibility to return the loaned items before the end of the loan period in the condition they were at the start of the period. Borrowers are expected to notify the lender of any theft, loss or damage as soon as possible to reduce the risk of disruption to subsequent borrowers.

The equipment is issued free of charge. In return for loaning the equipment we would like to receive feedback on the event for promotional purposes. Details of the event, including the number of volunteers and amount of litter collected is required. If you provide a photo* it may be used on Bristol Waste’s website, social media networks or press releases to promote the impact of the campaign. If the organiser is preparing any advertising material or social media releases Bristol Waste would like to be mentioned as supporters where feasible.

* Please ensure any individuals consent to having their photograph taken and where children under 18 take part parental consent is recorded. Alternatively, just use before/after pictures of the area and litter collected.

I agree to ensure the highest safety standards for the litter pick and will feedback after the event.

Disclaimer

Volunteers should not participate in litter picks unless they understand and accept that participation is entirely at their own risk. Volunteers are not working for, or on behalf of, Bristol Waste Company or Bristol City Council, therefore the Company or the Council will not be held responsible for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused as a result of the actions and omissions of volunteers or this guidance.
