Event description

Description

Each year, 8 million tonnes of plastic waste is added to our oceans – 250kg every second. To help solve this problem, King’s is committed to fighting single-use plastics.

Staff, students and alumni can join us as we team up with Bywaters on Thursday 26 March to remove rubbish from the bankside of the River Thames, as part of King's Global Day of Service - a campaign to bring the global King's community together through acts of service in your local community.

By removing plastics (and other waste) from the Thames, our students and staff will play their part in preventing more waste from ending up in the ocean, and also help keep one of Britain’s most popular spaces sustainable for future visitors.

All of the waste we collect through the litter pick will then sorted for recycling at Bywaters’ state-of-the-art Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), with the resulting segregated waste being sent to specialist recycling plants across the UK.

Gloves, hi-vis vests, bags to collect the waste and litter pickers will all be provided.

Should you have any queries regarding this event, please contact the alumni team at volunteering@kcl.ac.uk
