Show your area how much you love it by helping get it cleaned up and looking smart for Valentines. Start time is 10:15am for a 10:30 start until 12:30 Saturday Feb 10th We will be meeting at the junction between Gorham Drive and Nuns lane and fan out from there. Remember to wear something red or pink to show the love during this event and hopefully we can set a new record for the new year with how many bags we can collect! We have all equipment needed to litter pick but you are very welcome to bring your own if you wish. Additionally you may like to bring the following: - Any first aid supplies you may need while out - A drink to keep hydrated - Anything else you see fit for litter picking Comfy shoes and clothing is highly recommended, please dress for the weather.

Please ensure your own safety and others while we are out, if you require insurance, please arrange this yourself but the rules of common sense and being safe apply; don't pick up anything suspicious, sharp, dangerous or heavy and report anything suspicious to local authorities. Please let the event co-coordinator know during or at the end of the event if you have found anything that will need reporting. A hand out will also be given with details on what and who to report waste to. Hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please email cleanupsopwell@outlook.com If you can't make it on the day but would still like to help out by donating, you can make donations in bin liners, litter pickers, hi-vis jackets, gloves or anything else by getting in contact at the email address provided. Thank you! We did fantastically well and recovered 17 bags of waste with the help of our lovely volunteers. We had a real big focus on the hedges in Butterfield Lane which were overrun! .

North Lanarkshire Dumpers
I am sick of going into the countryside and finding people have dumped there crap, ie Car Tyres, beds, car seats, cookers, and other crap. I would like to be able to stop this happening but I know that will be hard so I am happy to make it difficult for people.

The Litter-Free Guiseley Campaign
Active since 2003. Our group hates the way that litter blights the environment. We understand that Council services cannot resolve the problem alone, so we put something back into our community by tackling the issue head-on. Our main aim is to keep the streets, lanes and green spaces of Guiseley, West Yorkshire, clear of litter. Occasionally, we cross over into Menston and Otley. A combination of high profile, regular litter picks and liaison with key groups - Leeds City Council, Morrisons and Guiseley School - helps to keep on top of the problem. Emails and phonecalls to key groups enable speedy action, but active litter pickers interested in making a contribution to improving their own locality are always welcome! We are looking for more active support from the residents of Guiseley. Volunteers can either just adopt their own patch or team up with other volunteers. Hours totally flexible - whatever suits you. Equipment and advice are provided free of charge! We cover different parts of Guiseley and we are collecting upwards of 100 bags of litter a month. Please support us in whatever capacity you can.
