Fishponds Clean Streets
Owing to the extended COVID-19 restrictions we were unable to carry out hardly any litter picks in 2020 after our wintry one on 29th February. This year has been similar and further limited by Bristol Waste not having resources to take away what we have collected! We are hoping this will change before too long so that we can resume organising regular litter picks. We are, however, delighted to at last be visible with our own page on this new CleanupUK website, which has replaced the LitterAction one. So do keep an eye on this page for updates! In the meantime, if you are new to litter picking in Fishponds and interested in getting involved, please contact us at: CleanerFishponds@gmail.com for more information. Louise, Pete, Carol & Stuart

Saltwells Clean & Green
We aim to clean up and maintain an urban nature reserve and ancient woodland right in the heart of a built up industrial area. Saltwells Woods and nature reserve is well used and well loved, and was recently saved from having a housing estate built on it, but sadly also neglected. With a renewed vigour now the woods are saved, we vow to make the area as CLEAN & GREEN as we possibly can.

Keeping Rothwell Clean & Green
Spurred on by the grass verges and parks around our lovely town regularly covered with litter, I decided to do litter picking walks in my free time. I have now formed this group, which is also on Facebook, to encourage others to help. I love where I live and aim to make others proud of their locality, so they think twice before chucking their rubbish. Don’t chuck it, bin it.
