Litter picks


If you'd like to organise a litter-pick up, we can provide you with all the information you will need.

We urge residents, businesses, schools and local communities to get involved by becoming litter aware and taking pride in the area they love.

Starting a litter pick up can make all the difference in South Tyneside.

It will make South Tyneside a nicer place to live, work and visit.

If you'd like to organise a one-off litter pick, South Tyneside Council will provide you with everything that you need to make it a success.

We can provide you with the right equipment, and collect your rubbish bags once you've finished.

Register your interest by emailing and a member of the team will get back in touch with you.

Don't forget that you will need permission to litter pick on private or public land.

Before carrying out a litter pick, contact South Tyneside Homes on 0300 123 66 33 to agree an area to clear.

You can report areas with lots of litter to the Council and the Council will remove the items, see report an issue.
