Litter Picking

The Friends - Home

Why not help collect litter in Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill?

Summer visitors and weekend picnickers can sometimes overwhelm the Park’s litter-picking staff resources, and that’s where your help could be invaluable. Our team of volunteers can make a real difference and help keep the Park looking great and presentable for everyone’s enjoyment.

In 2022 we are working between mid May and mid September, on Monday AM, Monday PM, Saturday AM and Sunday AM. There are four distinct picking zones – one on Primrose Hill, and then in Regent’s Park one at the Waterside (west), one in the sports pitches area (north) and one down the Broadwalk and Gloucester Green (east).

Organised litter picking is now closed for 2023 and will reopen in April 2024. Registered Litter Pickers with approved kit can pick when they like but results will no longer be recorded.

Please note we work under the supervision of the park’s contractors idverde, so there are a few important safety rules to follow. Any volunteers need to be willing to read the safety training notes and abide by them.
