Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council Logo

Community Clean Up

We all want to live in a Borough where people take pride in their surroundings

Litter Pick Boards

Picking up plastic litter around our Borough is one way of helping to clean up our oceans. It stops it from being washed down rivers to the sea, takes it out of harm’s way, stops it from breaking down into microplastics and becoming toxic. 

Where to find them?
  • Antrim – The Gateway Centre & Clotworthy House Shop
  • Newtownabbey – Hazelbank Park Car Park & Jordanstown Loughshore Café

You will find our new Litter Pick boards with litter pickers and reusable bags to collect litter and empty the bag into nearby bins. Please return your litter picker and reusable bag for the next person, all our litter pick boards have sanitiser provided.

Community Clean Up Support

In order to help build a sense of civic responsibility and encourage residents to look after their communities, we support community clean-ups by loaning equipment to local groups and individuals. This includes litter pickers, gloves, Hi-Vis jackets and rubbish bags. We will also arrange for the removal of any bags of litter collected.

If you would like to apply for this support, please download and complete the Support-in-kind Application Form and email a copy to waste@antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk.
