Let's Tidy Trafford Together
Let’s Tidy Trafford Together is an initiative to involve Trafford residents, schools, community groups and businesses in helping to improve the local environment and make Trafford a cleaner place.
We all have a part to play in helping keep the borough clean and tidy and we would like everyone to join this call to action and help to collect and dispose of litter from our streets, parks and open spaces between 16th September and the 20th October 2019. During this time you can carry out your own litter pick or join us at an event that is already taking place.
Arranging your own litter pick
If you would like to arrange your own litter pick we will help you along the way.
Please register your litter pick and request to loan litter pickers and delivery of some bags for a one off clean up.
Trafford residents can also receive a free litter picking kit if they sign the Be Responsible Pledge.
You can download our empty belly poster to help promote your litter pick.
Once you have carried out your litter pick you can arrange to have the bags of litter collected by e-mailing OneTraffordLitterBagCollection@amey.co.uk
Please let us know how many bags you want collecting and where you have left them.
Tell us about your activity
Once you have carried out your litter pick, it would be great to hear how you have done. Please let us know by completing this simple form and we will add your figures to the totals below. Why not share your activity on social media using #LetsTidyTraffordTogether?
