Register as a Community Litter Group
You do not need permission to volunteer to pick up litter as long as it's on public and not private land.
You can register as a group or an individual, but you will need a valid email address.
It's important to consider health and safety so don't work too close to main or busy highways or cause blockages on busy streets and pavements.
We can support residents and businesses of the Newcastle City Council area with litter picking advice and equipment. Please check our webpage for more details.
If you have any problems with the online forms or need some help and advice, please call 0191 2787878 and ask for "Your Local Services"
