Ahoy there, mateys!

We’re part of the buccaneering anti-littering campaign Treasure Your River and are looking for new recruits to join our crew. 

Our rivers are the heart of our communities and are a treasured habitat for a huge range of animals and humans alike. We’re working with Hubbub, The Rivers Trust, and other partners around the UK to help keep our rivers in ship-shape condition and to stop litter reaching our rivers and the seven seas.  

Mersey Rivers Trust is recruiting crew-mates to help with activities in Manchester, Salford and Liverpool.   Want to help us make a difference? 

From May until November 2021 we’ll be running events suitable for anyone to get on board. Here’s a taster of what you could get involved with:  

  • Join a plastic fishing trip – climb aboard a boat made from 99% recycled plastic and help us fish for rubbish and abandoned treasures – 2-9 July at Salford Quays Watersports Centre
  • Take part in a scavenger hunt litter pick – make your mark and discover the difference you can make on a mini-litter-pick adventure – events in June to October. 
  • Vote with your rubbish in pirate-themed bins – we’ll be putting pirate-themed bins around Salford, Manchester and Liverpool. 

Ready to get started? Sign up here to climb aboard.

Eager to make a difference in the meantime? Visit the Treasure Your River website to find out more about what you can do to prevent litter hitting our rivers and the seven seas. 


Further details will be posted here and on social media over the coming weeks:  




All events will be carefully managed in line with Covid regulations for everyone’s health and safety.

Best wishes from the Mersey Rivers Trust crew !
