Community Clean-up Scheme equipment - if you would like to access equipment under the Community Clean-up Scheme (bags, litter pickers, gloves or high-vis) please use the ‘Report It’ tool to log a request. Under level five public health advice, it is not possible to visit dlr offices to collect Community Clean-up equipment. Instead, please log your request using ‘Report It’ and we will contact you directly to provide more information and offer an alternative, when possible. The Community Clean-up Scheme is open to community groups, estate management groups, residents’ associations, tidy towns, tidy district groups and schools. 

Community Clean-up Scheme bag collections - the blue bag collection service is operating. Please use the ‘Report It’ tool to arrange the location and date of the blue litter bag collection. To prevent any delays, please contact us before the voluntary litter-pick.
