Community Clean-Ups and Skips

We’re working with communities around Brent to take on unsightly litter and illegal rubbish dumps.

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

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

Join local people like you and get involved with an upcoming Community Clean-Up.

We can 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.

Community Clean-Ups - COVID-19 update

Due to COVID-19, we encourage residents to consider organising their own small socially-distanced litter picks. 

We can help with litter pickers, bags and other support. Email recyclemore@brent.gov.uk to arrange for Veolia to drop off free litter picking equipment, and to pick up your bags of waste afterwards.

Remember to recycle items where you can, and always follow the latest government guidelines.

Stay tuned for more Community Skip dates

In honour of the Great British September Clean, the Community Skip embarked on a tour of all 21 wards in Brent.

Residents were able to drop up to five bulky items free of charge, with proof of a Brent address. Representatives from Veolia joined the council’s Neighbourhood Managers to help sort items and ensure they are recycled and reused wherever possible.

One final event is due to take place:

  • Wednesday 21 October, 10am-12 noon at “The Circle”, Neasden NW2

Further dates and locations will be advertised on this page. Please note that events may be cancelled or postponed at short notice. We advise that you check back.
