Love East Suffolk

Please note:

Following Government advice relating to COVID-19, we have decided to postpone our Love East Suffolk scheme and cancel all litter picks for the foreseeable future. We hope to re-schedule the scheme to a period later in the year. Many thanks to the groups who have already carried out litter picks as part of the scheme.

Love East Suffolk is an incentive based litter pick scheme which encourages, enables and rewards people for showing some love for the environment we live in by helping to keep it clean and tidy. 

The scheme gives community groups a winning way of cleaning up their neighbourhood while helping themselves by offering £20 to their nominated community fund or charity for litter picks carried out between 1 March and 31 May 2020.

All registered groups who carry out a litter pick during this period will also be entered into a £200 grand prize draw, with prizes provided by our partners, East Suffolk Norse.

East Suffolk Norse can provide equipment, including sacks, to groups on request and will also arrange for gathered litter to be collected. Litter pick sticks, bag hoops and tabards can also be hired, subject to availability.

To be eligible for the scheme, all registered groups must submit a photo from their litter pick and permit use of the photo for publicity purposes. All cash awards would be payable to a recognised charity or community group chosen by that team of volunteers.

Please ensure you register your litter pick at least one week in advance, to allow equipment to be delivered in good time. 

Cllr James Mallinder, Cabinet Member for the Environment said:

“A bit of time and effort can make a big difference to an area, not only for the people who live there but the wildlife too – it is a great way of giving something back to your local community and I hope that other residents appreciate the efforts of those who voluntarily pick up litter, helping to keep East Suffolk such a beautiful place in which to live, work and visit.”
