Typical Risks

  • We can organise litter picking insurance for a single event or a series of events.
  • A small number of insurers might include the liability for volunteers in a public liability insurance policy.  Others will require you to have employers liability.  We can advise you on the most cost effective way of protecting the group and your volunteers.

Litter Picking Insurance

When community groups organise a litter pick, often the land owner will require them to organise public liability insurance.

Litter picking also carries some other risks which are worth considering.  Particularly if your litter picking group comes across hazardous materials, works on a roadside or slope or is not set up with appropriate equipment.

Volunteers can and do seek civil damages from community groups where they can demonstrate that a duty of care has not been fulfilled and so having appropriate insurance can be a sensible move.

We can discuss your insurance needs whether it be for a single litter picking event or a series of events covered under an annual policy.

Doodleaid would like to thank Ladbrook for their service, professionalism, speed of service and friendliness.  All staff were very helpful and we would have no hesitation in recommending Ladbrook.

Bev, Doodleaid

Very many thanks for getting the paperwork back to us today.

Sylvia also asked that I send the thanks and appreciation of everyone connected with Mental Health Aberdeen, for the skillful negotiations you have demonstrated – as evidenced by the affordability of our new policy. We shall certainly be recommending your brokerage, but especially the efficiency and friendliness of your team, to other charitable organisations in our area.

I hope you have a great weekend and once again, thank you all so very much.

Bea, Mental Health Aberdeen

We have just finalised our 7th annual insurance renewal through Ladbrook Insurance and are very happy with the service received. The Account Handlers have always striven to offer competitive quotes and answered any queries or given further explanations by email or phone as appropriate and we have found this personal touch not only professional but also very reassuring


Litter Picking Insurance – Preparing for Your Event

Although many volunteers might find it frustrating when a council insists that they organise insurance for their civic community volunteering, it might actually be a sensible precaution for the group.

Litter picking on the roadside or where hazardous materials can be found carries some risk to the volunteers involved.

Preparation is critical and we have written a short preparation guide for litter picking which might help.
