We have been litter picking in the region as part of Plastic Free Chester for the last few years. We are now supporting Plastic Free Cheshire and so want to branch out. Of course lock down stopped group picks, but it was fantastic to see lots of Womble Groups starting or growing during this period. At the moment you need to purchase your own equipment or loan it from the Street Scene team. The team are travelling to deliver odd litter pickers to residents which seems to go against the aims of reducing our Carbon Footprint, so we applied for funding from Cheshire West and Cheshire Council to create Litter Pick Hubs.
You can now borrow equipment from one of our hubs which we are rolling out in the region. You can also join one of our group litter picks which have now restarted.
So far we will have hubs in some of the Chester Parks, Sykes Cottages, Exsqeeze Me in Handbridge, Just Footprints in Chester and Frodsham, Fish & Chips @ Weston Grove in Upton, Vivocare Water Tower Gardens and Winsford, Friends of Countess of Chester Park and more to be finalised. Those on the left are ready to use. Want a hub near you ?email firstname.lastname@example.org
All we ask to loan out the equipment is that you complete your information just once (see JOIN US below). This will give you access to a hub near you and also save completing lots of information every time you join our group picks.
