UNDER CONSTRUCTION: Thank you for your patience while the new Off the Ground website and blog are developed.

Off the Ground was founded in 2015 to help clean up Chippenham through a three-prong strategy of Cleaning, Education, and awareness-raising Projects. Since then, volunteers have removed hundreds of bags of rubbish and sent thousands of items to be recycled, spoken with of residents of all ages, and carried out the Love Chippenham campaign and launched Refill Chippenham. While tackling the problem of litter is still a big part of what Off the Ground does, we have expanded our scope to investigating how we can reduce waste both in the community and at home.

Interested in getting involved? Please drop us a line at or explore the website to see what’s happening.


We run regular Community Clean Ups and seek to empower residents to take responsibility for their own local patch.



We want to encourage everyone to think about the impact of litter … and come up with their own solutions to stop it.



At Off the Ground we look towards modern, low-cost methods of engagement to deliver anti-litter messages and activities.
