About the litter pick kits
Environment Agency litter pickers are now available to members of the public in Southampton.
Litter picking kits are stored at accessible locations to encourage the passing public to take a few minutes out of their day for a quick litter pick in the local vicinity. The kits, have been rolled out by the Environment Agency as part of Preventing Plastic Pollution, and will be stored by local businesses overnight and brought out during the day for public use.
There are also plans to roll the kits out across the wider Solent area.
