LAGER Can – The Litter Action Group for Ealing Residents holds group litter picks at various locations around the borough throughout the week and weekend. They are also becoming active in regeneration projects, including on Horsenden Hill. LAGER Can will provide equipment and guidance to people who would rather litter pick independently. Please have a look at LAGER Can’s website and get in touch if you would like to get involved.
LAGER Can was founded in February 2017 by local residents with the primary goal to make the borough’s open spaces cleaner and greener. Since then, they have grown exponentially with membership exceeding 1,800 by October 2021, a number that continues to grow! They work with a variety of partners including Ealing Council, the Canal & River Trust, businesses, and schools. LAGER Can is a very active group, with volunteers working every day independently or in groups, removing hundreds of bags of rubbish, recyclables and piles of unbaggable items from our open space (check out their real-time progress here).
They have also developed, and maintain, a Rose Garden near Alwyne and Manor Court Roads in Hanwell.
In May 2017, their fantastic work was recognised at a national level as they received a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
