Salford 'Adopt a street'
We are encouraging Salford residents to 'adopt a street' and pledge to keep it litter free.
In return we (with support from Salford City Council) will provide you with: *
litter picking resources
your adoption listed on the list (until we figure out a free map as we have limited funding) to the right to share your pledge
View our current adopted streets here:
Please contact us to make your pledge. Please note we are voluntary so supplying resources depends on our funding and when volunteers can post them out, so please be patient.
If just one person adopted one street in Salford, litter would be extinct!
If you have never litter picked with us before, please read our litter picking guide written by a Salfordian to make sure you are keeping safe whilst battling litter.
More information on how this works below:
Thanks for your interest in Adopt a Street, it really means a lot. If you haven’t already, please let us know the name and street you would like to be added to our ‘adopt a street’ map on our website:
Your name and street will be added to the map ASAP if you have already mentioned/when you mentioned. Please not this may take some time us volunteers all work full-time. If you need any litter picking equipment please first register your interest to become a ‘Street Champion’. It takes about 5 minutes to complete and essentially registers your litter concerns to the council. They do not email or summon you to do anything, but in means you can access the councils free litter picking equipment supplies. Sign up using the link here:
You should then be able to email your local neighbourhood manager depending on where you live and tell them you need a bag hoop, litter picker and bin bags. They can also arrange for bin men to collect full bags of collected litter if you let them know where. The emails can be found on the image attached. If you feel your email is not being fulfilled or you want equipment quicker you can pick up the equipment from one of us. Please appreciate we are all volunteers who work full-time so getting resources to you may take time.
