Safety first

Bristol Waste takes Health and Safety very seriously. When putting together your littler pick, here are few things to keep in mind:
  • think carefully about the location of your litter pick; is it near a high traffic road or on challenging terrain?
  • be especially careful near roads and keep a close watch on any children involved
  • ensure that all participants are briefed on how to participate in the litter pick safely
  • wear sturdy shoes or boots and not to use your hands to pick up any waste – only use the litter picking sticks provided
  • Download our sample risk assessment form to complete prior to the event


Event and Equipment Details

  • We have a limited amount of equipment which will be loaned on a first come, first served basis.
  • Kits are collected from our depot on Albert Road, Bristol BS2 0XS (please use Gate 1 entrance and enter at the door marked 'Visitors Entrance').
  • Kits must be returned as soon as possible after the event – preferably clean.
