Across Colliers Wood, Veolia are responsible for litter within the streets and urban areas and idverde are responsible for litter in our parks and green spaces. However, litter continues to be a big problem in the area and so the friends group have a fortnightly litter picking team who meet to collect litter from various locations depending on need. We have started to weigh litter collected in order to report back volume to idverde and Merton Council.
We collect litter on the second Tuesday of each month at 9am and help the Green Party on the forth Sunday of each month at 11am. Locations are advised each time via our social media and WhatsApp Group.
