Anti-littering campaign Treasure Your River after new recruits

Ahoy there, mateys! We’re part of the buccaneering anti-littering campaign Treasure Your River and are looking for new recruits to join our crew.

Our rivers are the heart of our communities and are a treasured habitat for a huge range of animals and humans alike. We’re working with Hubbub, The Rivers Trust, and other partners around the UK to help keep our rivers in ship-shape and to stop litter reaching the seven seas.

Keep Wales Tidy are recruiting crewmates to help with activities in Cardiff Bay. Each year Cardiff Harbour Authority collect an average of 500 tonnes of litter, with an estimated 90% making its way down the River Taff.  Want us to help us make a difference?

From May until November, we’ll be running events suitable for anyone to get on board. Here’s a taster of what you could get involved with:

  • Join a plastic fishing trip – climb aboard a boat made from 99% recycled plastic and help us fish for rubbish and abandoned treasures.
  • Take part in a scavenger hunt or themed litter pick – make your mark and discover the difference you can make on a litter pick adventure.
  • Captain our pirate (litter-eating) ghost ships – set sail whilst staying dry. Our remote-controlled litter-busting boats will clear anything lurking on the water, no sailing experience required.
  • Vote with your rubbish in pirate-themed bins – we’ll be putting pirate-themed bins around a city near you.

Ready to get started? Email to climb aboard
