Community and education

Community cleanups

We can help your community group organise a cleanup of your local area.

We'll give you brushes, shovels, litter picks, gloves and bags - all free of charge. They'll be delivered to you in advance and we'll collect them again, along with the rubbish, once the cleanup is complete. You'll need to give us at least one week's notice so we have time to organise the equipment.

It's your responsibility to look after the equipment and make sure that all items are returned at the end of the cleanup. You'll also have to sign a receipt when you receive the items.

To book a cleanup, email catcleansing@belfastcity.gov.uk or call 028 9050 0501.

Guidelines for event organisers

If you're organising an event, please read our booklet 'Managing litter and waste - guidelines for event organisers'. It gives you helpful advice on how to control litter before, during and after an event and how we can help you with the cleanup operation.

You can also request a copy of the booklet by calling 028 9050 0501.

Education

We run a range of anti-litter events to help your school or community group reach its environmental goals. They're fun, free and linked to the NI Curriculum.

If you'd like to book one of our free anti-litter workshops, please call us on 028 9032 0202 ext 5377 or email catcleansing@belfastcity.gov.uk.

Nursery and Foundation Stage

We offer a range of short stories to help educate and entertain pupils about litter and the impact it has on the world around them.

Primary (Key stage 1 and 2 )

Our key stage 1 and 2 workshops includes short video clips, games, discussions and competitions. Each session normally lasts 1 hour. The workshops are linked to the Northern Ireland Curriculum.

After the workshop, you'll receive our anti-litter education pack containing lessons plans, resources and a CD, and we can help you organise a community cleanup.

If you'd like to book one of our free anti-litter workshops, please call us on 028 9032 0202 or email catcleansing@belfastcity.gov.uk

Post-primary

If you would like to arrange an anti-litter workshop for this age group, please contact us on 028 90 500 501 or email catcleansing@belastcity.gov.uk to discuss.
