Litter Picking

Residents across Solihull take great pride in where they live and are very active in helping to keep their local areas clear of litter. 


On this page you will find more information about how you can register to receive free equipment to start your litter picking journey, and find out about existing litter picking groups or how to start a new one where you live! 

Love Solihull Community Litter Picking


Any individuals wanting to do a spot of litter picking can register online for our Love Solihull Community Litter Picking initiative and receive free equipment to help you get started.

Once registered, you will receive an email from Love Solihull inviting you to collect equipment from your local library.


The following libraries act as Litter Picking Hubs, issuing equipment on behalf of Love Solihull:

  • Balsall Common

  • Castle Bromwich 

  • Chelmsley Wood 

  • Dickens Heath

  • Hampton-in-Arden (this library stocks Love Solihull bags only)

  • Hobs Moat 

  • Kingshurst 

  • Knowle 

  • Marston Green

  • Meriden

  • Olton 

  • Shirley 

  • The Core

Please do not visit the library to collect equipment until you have registered and received a confirmation email from Love Solihull, as staff will be unable to issue equipment.

Once you have your confirmation email, don't forget to check the library opening hours before visiting to collect your equipment.
