Tower Hamlets residents can do their bit to keep neighbourhood clean

PUBLISHED: 11:53 04 February 2014 | UPDATED: 11:53 04 February 2014

Residents across Tower Hamlets are being urged to get involved in litter picking and clean their streets by a national charity.

CleanupUK already runs regular sessions involving residents in the borough who regularly pick up their litter grabber, put on their Beautiful Boroughs Volunteer hi-viz vest and help to keep their area respectable. CleanupUK has worked with residents in Poplar, Stepney, Bow, Shadwell and Mudchute to organise litter picking activities.

There are regular opportunities to get involved:

*Every Wednesday evening the Ocean Litter Pickers meet at 7pm in Stepney.

*Every Thursday evening the Poplar Pick Up Party meet at 6.30pm.

*On the Isle of Dogs the Mudchute Magpies meet on the third Sunday of each month.

*The 2nd East London scout group regularly fill 100 bags per month.

CleanupUK helps residents to set up litter picking groups in their own neighbourhood. If you want to set up a litter picking event in your area, contact Emma Harrington from CleanupUK at or call on 07950 345 639.
