Litter Picking in Suffolk

Litter is a growing problem throughout our towns and countryside. Over 2 million pieces of litter are dropped in the UK each day. We at the Sicon Foundation are going to do our part to help with this problem.

We run litter picking sessions across Suffolk and encourage as many people as possible to do the same. Due to the growing litter issue we have invested in a large amount of litter picking equipment and if you would like to borrow some then get in touch! Let’s work together to make Suffolk litter free!

Monday 19th July 2021 | Red Lodge

On Monday 19th July we spent another evening with the Red Lodge Beavers, working hard collecting litter on the Pavilion field. It was one of the hottest evening of the year and the kids put in a brilliant effort; collecting 2 big bags of rubbish. We can’t wait to work with more young people in Red Lodge when term starts again in September!

We joined the Red Lodge Beavers to educate and encourage the group about why collecting litter is so important. After our talk we headed out onto the Red Lodge Heath to see what we could find and the 7 beavers did a brilliant job collecting a huge black bag full of rubbish throughout the evening.

We had our first litter picking day on Saturday 1st May 2021, a truly eye opening experience, but hugely satisfying. The team filled 20 large bags filled in a couple of hours, but unfortunately there is still lots more to go. We will be out and about again in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 5th June!
