Ryedale District Council


You are here: Home Environment Don't be a Waster - Reduce, Reuse, Respect February – Litter - the Big Clean Up

How we can all support community events across the district to litter pick.

We will offer support by providing equipment, high visibility jackets and will collect waste at the end of the event. We’ll also work with organisers to promote events and encourage wider community involvement from, for example, local schools and businesses.

Malton and Norton Tidy Group meet on the first Sunday of the month (10am to 12pm) to litter pick, weed, sweep and tidy specific local areas. In 2017 they collected 305 bags of litter – which is a fantastic achievement. They alternate events between Norton and Malton each month. For Norton events they meet in St Nicholas Street car park. For Malton they meet in Water Lane car park (opposite Yates’). The Council provides bags and litter pickers but please bring your own gloves/tools.

As a council we’re supporting the group’s March event – which is the same weekend as Keep Britain Tidy’s Big Clean Up. So come along and join our councillors and staff on Sunday 4 March. We’re meeting at 10am in St Nicholas Street car park in Norton.

Already know a litter hero? Tell us about them and we can let other people know what they’re doing – and inspire more litter heroes - email us at .

We want to see less litter in our district. We're proud of where we live and we want you to be too. That’s one of the main reasons behind our Don’t be a Waster – Reduce, Reuse, Respect campaign.

It might be just one piece of rubbish you drop – but it all adds up. Ryedale is one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Help us keep it that way.
