Cost of living support

Colchester City Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.

Litter Warriors

Join local residents from all over the city who are committed to picking litter in their local communities on a regular basis.


  • What the Litter Warriors do
  • What the requirements are
  • Register to become a Litter Warrior

Thanks to our existing litter warriors we have been able to further preserve our environment. It is also a great way to bring families, friends and neighbours together, and to maintain pride in our local neighbourhood.

We will provide you with your own hi-vis vest bearing the ‘litter warriors’ logo and all the necessary litter picking equipment, including bags which will be collected when you’re finished.

Registered Litter Warriors are also able to request gloves and garden sacks to allow them to tackle weeding whilst out and about litter picking.

Litter warriors can be individuals or groups of up to 20 people including family members or friends. You can pledge to do as little as 15 minutes a week or more if you prefer.
