Areas covered: The civil parish of Otterford in the Blackdown Hills in Somerset.

Otterford Parish Litter Pick aims to remove as much litter (and fly-tipped items) as possible from the roads and lanes in the parish - which is located in the beautiful Blackdown Hills AONB on the Somerset/Devon border.

We now hold three Litter Picks annually - in March, July and November.

After sorting,as much litter as possible is recycled: to date we have recycled 6,428 drinks cans, 5,407 plastic bottles, 1,053 glass bottles/jars, and lots of miscellaneous metal.

We are grateful to Whitbread Plc (from when they owned Costa Coffee) and Litteraction for donating equipment and clothing. And to Somerset West & Taunton District Council (and their contractor idVerde) for providing litter sacks for each Pick and now collecting the rubbish afterwards.
