Fletchers Waste Management Support Local Sheffield Litter Picking Volunteers

As Fletchers Waste are committed to operating our business responsibly, we recognise the importance of protecting the environment and believe our work to recycle and be sustainable with waste shouldn’t just stop at our yard.

Following the recent loosening of restrictions combined with warm weather, locals flocked to parks and other outdoor areas across the city to socialise together. However, the meet-ups made headlines as photos emerged of the shocking litter that had been left behind.

After seeing the news of the dreadful litter and fly-tipping, Fletchers Waste contacted The Sheffield Litter Pickers to see if we could help and volunteer with litter picking.

On Thursday 8th April, Freddie Ward, Fletchers Waste’s Commercial Director, met with Linda, one of Sheffield Litter Pickers' volunteers at the Sheffield Amphitheatre. Spending the afternoon together, Freddie was able to help Linda with litter picking the surrounding area whilst also learning more about the great work the volunteers do for the city.

From this meeting, Fletchers understood more about the struggles The Sheffield Litter Pickers are facing. Especially since it was recently reported that a year’s worth of litter was placed into outdoor bins in just a few weeks, leaving them overflowing with simply not enough manpower or equipment to combat it.

Due to this, Fletchers will now be regularly helping to volunteer with the Sheffield Litter Pickers at community picks and allow more people to get involved; we will donate bin bags and 100 grabbers. As well as this, when there are bigger picking events, Fletchers will be providing skip hire in Sheffield to make their hard work more manageable.

We're looking forward to offering our continued support and joining the amazing volunteers in their efforts to make Sheffield a cleaner and safer city.
