Digbeth Community Litter Pick

Do you live, play or work in Digbeth? Are you fed up with the increasing litter problem?

BABMAG in collaboration with Shiny People Events are running a community clean up project – Don’t Be A Wasteman.

Inspired by other local litter picking groups, we want to tackle the issue on our own turf.

We’re proud of our creative quarter and want it to be presented well to those visiting Brum.

The growing number of nightlife venues and development in the area has meant there has been a surge in the amount of litter – we’re implementing a clean up plan to reflect this.

We’re encouraging businesses and venues in the area to get on board with the campaign to make long lasting impact, sustain our community effort and define the future of Digbeth.

Please join us to make a change – bring your mates!


Wasteman; [Insult] Someone who does nothing with their life (or drops litter)
