In 2020, we saw more than 3,600 #LitterHeroes collect nearly 5,500 bags of litter that would have otherwise remained on our streets and beaches and in our parks.
We want to know how post-lockdown life is affecting the amount and type of litter on our streets, beaches and in our parks.
We’re encouraging everyone to use our free online reporting system Epicollect5. The information you provide helps us build a Wales-wide picture of the activity taking place and the issues you’re facing.
If you’re a Litter Champion or established community group, you’ll know all about Epicollect5. It’s not as scary as it sounds, we promise! It’s quick and easy to add information to Epicollect5 – you can choose whether to record your activity while you’re out and about using the free app or upload the results later via the website.
Take a look at our step by step guide below to get started and let us know the big difference you made today.
