Join Thames21 to tidy up one of London’s biggest litter hotspots – Newcastle Draw Dock on the Isle of Dogs. As well as cleaning the site, we will be leading a count to uncover where all the litter is coming from. This is the first event in a series at Newcastle Draw Dock to help us answer questions like:

  • is the litter issue on the Thames getting worse or better?
  • which types of litter are the most common?
  • how is the litter getting into the river (and how do we stop it)?

We would love you to come down and give a helping hand. All ages welcome, children under the age of 16 to be accompanied by an adult. If interested, drop us an email – or simply show up! Boots and gloves will be provided by Thames21.
