Litter Warriors

The principle is simple: regular litter picks throughout the town that are based on areas of need. Frome Town Council will supply equipment, the Litter Warriors’ group will decide the location and everyone is welcome to join in. The regular litter picks will be every two weeks, if you’d like to join, please email fromelitterwarriors@gmail.com.

Coronavirus means that Frome Litter Warriors litter picks look a little different and need to be socially distanced but they do have some planned.

If you’d like to join them, you must email to let them know so they can take the proper precautions to keep everyone safe. Of course you can still do your bit for the environment in these challenging times by doing a solo litter pick when you’re out and about.

Alternatively you can borrow equipment and organise a litter pick in your area, just email us.

If there is an area of Frome that you would like the litter warriors to add to their list, then please do get in touch with them on fromelitterwarriors@gmail.com.

Scheduled litter picks

Saturday 25th September: Meet Rich Ackroyd at the junction of Lower Innox and Mill Close at 10:30am for picking along the river. Kit will be provided, or bring your own if you already have some. No need to sign up, just turn up on the morning.
