Reduce My Rubbish
What can you do?More
The Love Norfolk Hate Litter campaign is calling on everyone to do their bit to stop litter for a cleaner county
Whether it’s joining your local community litter pick, setting up a new group or doing a 2 minute beach clean on your next trip to the seaside, there are plenty of ways you can get involved.
The councils in Norfolk are supporting this campaign, providing materials and downloadable resources, including a poster which can be printed off and displayed and a schools pack to help teach children about the harm litter can cause.
Love Norfolk Hate Litter is the brainchild of Norfolk man Nigel Ford, who has worked tirelessly to keep our beautiful county clean and encourage others to do the same.
He is joined by the Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk, Sir Richard Jewson, and his Deputy Lieutenants, who are offering their support both to community litter picks and schools.
They can offer advice and information as well as equipment such as: hi-viz vests, litter pick sticks, hoops and sacks (if needed) from your local council. They can also arrange collection of the rubbish following your litter pick.

Local groups play a large part in organising clean ups and other environmental events.
There are lots of other local groups who would be happy for you to join them.
If you are a local group which would like to join our Love Norfolk, Hate Litter campaign, please get in touch with Norfolk Recycles by sending us a direct message on Facebook or Twitter.
The Hethersett Environmental Action Team, known as HEAT, have been organising local litter picks since 2001.
People of all ages get involved with the regular litter picks, and they have collected everything from sweet wrappers and plastic bottles to discarded bicycles.
“We litter pick because we take pride in our village and do our best to protect our environment,” said HEAT member Anne Edwards.
“It is also good exercise and the children really enjoy it.”
