Litter Pick Guidance

Risk Assessment

Before taking part in a litter pick you must have read these documents and completed this safety form



  • When is the next litter pick?

You can see all upcoming events here:  Sustainability at UH - How To Get Involved

  • Can my SBU/School/ society borrow equipment to conduct our own litter pick?

Yes, equipment can be borrowed from the Sustainability Team. Please contact for enquiries. 

  • Do I need to collect recyclable and non-recyclables separately?

Under the advice of our Estates department, it is best to collect recyclable and non-recyclable items together during litter picks as it is easier for the waste contractor to pick out the non-contaminated recyclables at the waste facility than to remove the contaminated items from the recycling stream. If, however, you come across a large number of cans or bottles in an area, these should be collected separately if possible, and placed in a mixed recycling bin.
