Redelivery service

This morning, we noticed a large number of dumped boxes on the grass patch at the top of Cressingham Road. Every morning, hundreds of children on their way to school walk past hideous piles of litter and fly-tipped junk. What a lovely way to introduce our kids to a sense of community and responsibility and a respect for our local neighbourhood and our environment!

The good thing about fly-tippers is that, by definition, they are lazy and a bit thick. Thus, although they’d tried to remove the address label on these boxes, we noticed one still remained. So we helpfully “re-delivered” their junk back to their front garden, lower down the road, with one of our fly-tipping labels attached. Let’s see where those boxes go next!


Hello and welcome to Burnt Oak Litter Pickers! We have lived in Burnt Oak for 13 years and have decided to do something about the mess. Rather than wait for “the council” to help, we decided to act as if they don’t exist, and start looking after our neighbourhood ourselves. You can join us by keeping your patch clean, and by joining us most Saturday mornings for organised picks.

Keep us bookmarked, and follow us on Instagram!
