CPRE’s Green Clean is a litter pick to clean up the countryside throughout September – we need your help
Following the great news of environment secretary Michael Gove's announcement that England will have a deposit return system for bottles and cans, the Government is currently looking into how this system will work, so now is the time to clean up the countryside and show what it could look like with an effective deposit system.
We'll be counting all the bottles and cans collected locally, to provide national evidence to the Government that they need to create the best possible deposit return system for England. We'll provide the kit – just turn up!
We'll also be taking our mobile reverse vending machine – which collects drinks containers of all materials and sizes – to several of the events, with which participating volunteers will be able to dispose of, and receive 10p for, each of the drinks containers collected on their litter picks, helping people become accustomed to the way that a deposit system works.
