Wychavon District Council - Adopt a Street Scheme

Do you love where you live and would like to help keep it looking clean and tidy?

Join the Wychavon Adopt a Street scheme and make a difference to your community.

All you have to do is sign the online pledge which includes:

  • Telling Wychavon which area of land you would like to adopt (public land only unless you have permission from the landowner)
  • A promise from you to litter pick your chosen site at least three times a year on dates of your choosing and at your convenience

The area you choose to litter pick can be as small or as large as you like. The scheme is open to individuals, schools and community groups.

You can use your black bin at home for disposing of any litter you collect.

Community groups should pre-agree collection arrangements in advance in the same way.

In return for your commitment Wychavon will provide you with:

  • Free Litter picking equipment and bags (limited to 10 sets for community groups/schools)
  • Guidance on health and safety

Wychavon will still be carrying out litter picking and street cleansing duties as well as a range of other activities to encourage people to dispose of their litter responsibly. Together we can help keep Wychavon clean and tidy.
