Litter picking

Folkestone & Hythe is a beautiful district - you can help us keep it that way.

Community clean-ups are a simple way of helping us reduce the amount of litter on our streets, and make a special contribution to the environment and enhance our daily cleaning schedules.

It's also a good way to meet new people, learn new skills, and enjoy the fresh Kentish air.

If you wish to organise one on public land, we can help by providing all the equipment and support needed. Email our Area Officers for more information, including details about making your event COVID-19 secure.

Or you can join in with any of the events which take place across the district throughout the year. It's easy to get involved!
