Jan 2023: University have restarted a community litter litter pick, around once per month.
February 2022: Two litter pickings have been done so far- you can find out about litter-picking events and get involved here: LS6 Litter Pickers Facebook Group. We are also hoping to organise so that litter pickers may be able to be borrowed in the future.
