Community Litter Picks

Fife has some of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland and we welcome your support to keep them free from litter. Every year 78 million pounds is spent cleaning up litter in Scotland, from our beaches, roadside, streets and countryside. Litter that could and should be disposed of responsibly by the public that use our landscapes.

Fife Coast & Countryside Trust recognises there are a number of community groups, schools and businesses who take pride in their communities and want to carry out Beach Cleans and other Litter Pick Events benefiting their local communities, parks and beaches many of which the Trust manage.

To support these groups FCCT have ‘Litter Pick Packs’ available to loan or purchase.

Our ‘Litter Pick Packs’ have everything your group will need to hold a successful event, with the Trust arranging for the disposal of all the resulting bags of litter. All packs will contain:

Litter Grabbers
Gloves
Refuse Bags
First Aid Kit
Broken Glass Kit
General Risk Assessment
Safety Brief

Our ‘Litter Pick Packs’ have a starting cost of £400.00 plus VAT for our smallest pack. Please do get in touch with one of our team to learn more.

FCCT welcome and support groups undertaking fundraising events on our behalf as part of their organised Litter Picking or Beach Clean event but the loan service we offer is completely free of charge. If you would like to organise a Beach Clean in your area then please complete our Community Litter Pick Form.

FCCT’s Community Beach Litter Pick Toolkit provides further information on the process and requirements for the use of our ‘Litter Pick Packs’.

When carrying out any Litter Picking event the Trust would urge all organisers to carry out a Risk Assessment and our Safety Briefing as a minimum of good practice.
