The organisers of TRIP - Twyford Rethinks Its Plastics - are planning the annual litter pick in Twyford on 11 October 2020, kicking off at 10.00 am.

Since meeting in a large group is impossible due to Covid, residents are invited to join in the litter pick by organising their own small groups of 'cleaner-uppers'. It won't be possible to gather in a central point as in the past, so this year is all about lots of mini events taking place at the same time. That way we'll still be making a joint effort to clean up our village and make an impact.

Don't let the virus stop our work to have a litter-free environment!

The following rules will apply on the day:

  1. We need volunteers please! The entire family can be out doing a wonderful thing for the planet – cleaning up!
  2. Please provide your own litter picks as we cannot get any loaned to us due to Covid.
  3. We plan to start at 10am, but you can choose an alternative time that suits you.
  4. Provide your own blue litter bags – take more than one as it will be good to separate recyclable items (cans, plastic water bottles etc) from the non-recyclable waste.
  5. Pick a street or area you think needs cleaning up: if the street you live in is ok, go for a walk in the neighbourhood and find an area with more litter.
  6. Wear hi-visibility vests, both adults and children – be seen!
  7. If accompanied by children or dogs, keep them safe and off the roads.
  8. Take photos of the bags of litter you have collected and post them on the TRIP Facebook group (link above).
  9. Take your filled litter bags home with you and add them to your household waste or recycling collection.
  10. If you have any questions, please email them through to

We look forward to having a great day and hope you can join us.
