LITTER-PICK and SORT Saturday 2nd March - Saturday 9th March 2019


This Saturday we're joining forces with the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and Keep Britain Tidy for a Litter-Pick with a difference. Taking part will help influence Government policy.

This time we shall not only collect litter. Litter will be sorted and analysed using the methodology developed by CPRE. The resulting data will support our response to the Government consultation on a Deposit and Return Scheme (DRS) for drinks containers.

We hope our work will encourage other groups across Hampshire to do the same.

The Litter-Pick and Sort will launch on Saturday afternoon. It is supported by Petersfield Town Council, East Hampshire District Council, CPRE Hampshire, Keep Britain Tidy and Damian Hinds MP.

Please join us and get involved in whatever way you can. This is a community project. Everyone is welcome - individuals, friends, families, members of clubs and other organisations, Town and District Councillors and staff, National Park Members and staff. If you know of anyone litter-picking in Petersfield generally, please encourage them to contact us so we can co-ordinate our efforts.

Please RSVP to We'll reply with more details, and ensure that there is litterpicking equipment available. We'll issue kit and routes and give full safety advice on Saturday, but if you are not available then, we'll arrange a different time to meet up and plan your route.

Here's the programme:

Saturday 2nd March 1.15 – 3.30pm: Kick-off event attended by Damian Hinds MP at Petersfield Methodist Church, Station Road, GU32 3ED. Register and collect Litter-Picking kit.

Saturday 2nd March – Saturday 9th March: Collect Litter at your convenience from agreed areas.

Any time: Return Litter in bags provided to 4 Herne Court, Heath Road, GU31 4EQ.

Saturday 9th March 2.30 – 4.00pm: Final Litter-Sort and Count at 4 Herne Court, Heath Road, GU31 4EQ

We appreciate this is short notice but very much hope you can support this community project. The Litter-Pick will help reduce waste and litter in the town and surrounding areas. The data we collect will add to the strength of call for a Government Deposit and Return Scheme (DRS) for drinks containers.

Please RSVP to if you can take part.
