Litter Picking Kits at Essex Country Parks

Be an Essex Explorer Litter Picker this half term

We have nearly 200 litter pickers and bags from our friends at Love Essex and the Active Essex ‘Find Your Active’ campaign to giveaway at the Essex Country Parks this October half term.

Kits will be available at all Essex Country Parks (except Marsh Farm) from Friday 22 October and throughout the weekend, where it's possible for park rangers to keep them topped up!

Simply turn up and take your kit (a litter picker and a roll of bags) while stocks last. Take them home and become a champion of the park and the local community. Kits will be outside of visitor centres in most cases.

You can leave any filled bags of rubbish next to the bins to be collected. Help keep Essex clean and green for everyone, and our wildlife too.

The participating Essex Country Parks are: Belhus Woods, Cudmore Grove, Danbury, Great Notley, Hadleigh, Thorndon and Weald.

Kits will also be available to collect from your local council offices (we advise ringing to check first) or to borrow from all Essex Libraries from Friday 22 October.

You can read more litter picking and Love Essex Champions in the Essex Explorer magazine (page 42).
