Sign our litter charter pledge
Sponsor a new litter bin
Your business could purchase litter bins that we’ll install within parks, play areas, green spaces and on streets. We will insert a poster with your company name and logo thanking you for your support. You’ll also benefit from print, social media and council web page promotion.
Adopt a litter picking group
Adopting a community group will provide your business with opportunities to promote and support the fantastic work that our volunteers are doing. You could attend litter picking events, help tackle litter issues, or provide a financial contribution.
Adopt a school
Make stronger links within your community by supporting your local school.
A financial contribution can help provide a school with essential equipment, and help them to educate students on the impact that litter has on their community.
Sponsor the annual Pride in Your Patch celebration event
The clean and green team host an annual Pride in Your Patch celebration event to acknowledge and thank volunteers for their hard work. This is a showcasing event for individuals, community groups, schools and businesses to share the activities, events and projects they have delivered over the previous 12 months.
Sponsorship money will go towards costs involved with organising the event. You’ll have a section in the programme and the opportunity to give a presentation at the event, as well as the usual sponsorship benefits listed below.
Contact us to find out more about costs, and how to get involved. Ask for the volunteer coordinators.
