We work to promote, enhance and protect the beautiful countryside in Hampshire. Could you help improve the area, making it safer for wildlife, the local community and visitors?
As a CPRE Hampshire litter picker, you’ll carry out one-hour litter picks, when you are available, on a Saturday morning in the Winchester local authority area tackling littered roadside verges.
You will be accompanied by several other volunteers from CPRE Hampshire and supported by an Idverde truck which will help ensure you are safely shielded from on-coming traffic.
Your details will be added to our pool of CPRE Hampshire litter pickers and you will be contacted each week with details of the pick to see if you are available to help. You are not committed to helping out every week.
Prior to the litter pick Idverde (the company responsible for Winchester street cleaning), will provide you with health and safety guidance which once read you will need to sign for on the day so that you are covered by their insurance.
