Community Clean-Ups and Skips

We’re working with the community to take on unsightly litter and illegal rubbish dumps.

Will you take a stand with us and show your area some love?

Our Neighbourhood Managers organise a rolling programme of Community Clean-Ups, in partnership with local resident groups and Veolia.

Neighbourhood Managers arrange for litter picking equipment, gloves and bin bags to be ready at the meeting point, as well as for someone to collect the bags afterwards.

What's more, the Community Skip is back, and it’s helping to make Brent cleaner and greener! Following a successful trial last year, the Community Skip will be popping up at selected Clean-Ups. Restrictions apply, please see below.
