Plastic Free Portsmouth - holds at least two local community events arranged and made open for all to attend, in one calendar year.
The Marine Conservation Society’s (MCS) Great British Beach Clean is an annual beach clean, run in September, where volunteers, either individuals or groups, meet to collect litter from beaches. The data is recorded by the groups as they are collecting. The data is analysed to show how many items were present per 100 metres of beach. You can find local events and groups on the MCS website. The Source to Sea Litter Quest is part of the Great British Beach Clean for people who don't live near a beach, or who may have noticed a litter problem area in a park or street.
Cleanup UK is the home of community litter picking. They have a map of local groups, so you can find what is near you or register your group for others to find.
