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.

Customer Reviews

After several disappointing experiences with other brokers I found Ladbrook Insurance to be a breath of fresh air! Any queries I have had regarding my policy have been answered quickly and without any hassle.  The customer service is excellent. They have an extensive knowledge of their insurers and found me an excellent policy.  Thank you!

First class service from an agent who went above and beyond to source the perfect insurance for our charity, FASD Aware Northern Ireland.  Nothing was to much bother and someone was always on hand to answer any questions.  Thank you so much for all your help and for your kind and friendly service

Alison McNamara, FASD Aware NI

When we asked Ladbrook for a quote we had been looking for insurance cover for a month already with no luck.  As soon as we got in touch with Shelley and Tim we knew that they understood our sector better than anyone else. We felt that Ladbrook was genuinely interested to understand our work and to make sure that we had the right level of cover.  They also offered to review other insurance covers we had.  They worked on a very tight deadline and just before Christmas to secure cover for Micro Rainbow International.  It is the first time that we feel that our insurers actually care about protecting MRI’s important work for the community.  I am confident that this is the beginning of a long partnership.

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.
