CPRE Hampshire have partnered up with Winchesters street cleaning company, Idverde, to undertake weekly litter picks in the Winchester local authority area. New volunteers are always needed and are most welcome.

Each Saturday morning, a group of CPRE Hampshire volunteers, joined by an Idverde truck and driver tackle roads within Winchester that are badly affected by litter. So far, the following roads have been cleared:

  • Badger Farm Road
  • Well House Lane
  • Otterbourne Road
  • Shepherds Farm Lane
  • Kiln Lane

The litter picks generally target roadside verges and the Idverde truck is able to safely shield our volunteers from on-coming traffic. We may every so often consider larger areas. We have recently held a larger litter pick at Farley Mount.

A recent study conducted by CPRE found that litter has increased by an incredible amount since the start of the pandemic which not only looks unsightly, but is also a danger to local wildlife. We hope our weekly litter picks will go some way towards helping combat this.

CPRE are calling for an all-in drinks Deposit Return Scheme which would dramatically increase the rate of drinks containers that are recycled.

To sign up please email hantssupportercare@cprehampshire.org.uk

Thank you in advance for your help. Here’s hoping that together we can keep Winchester clean!
