Home > About Us

Our core principle is founded upon improving litter and landfill conditions across the UK and the wider globe.

Clean, green and tidy

Manufacturing Litterpickers since 1965, The Helping Hand Company and its environmental product portfolio has progressed through the decades to become what it is today - helping community groups, local authorities, schools, charities, not-for-profit organisations, landscape companies, distributors, housing associations and individuals to keep the environment clean, green and tidy.

A personal, hands-on approach

Still a small family-run business based in Herefordshire with our own manufacturing facility on site, we tailor-make many products and kits to the needs of our partners, so if you have any request (normal to the bizarre!) then get in touch, we'll always try to help.

Award-winning community engagement

As well as being a campaign partner/supporter of CIWM, Cleanup UK, Keep Britain Tidy, Keep Scotland Beautiful and Keep Wales Tidy. We also get involved and support small and large organisations around the world with their eco-campaigns - winning us a International Green Apple Award in the process! From getting out on the streets to litterpick ourselves, to helping children understand the importance of preserving tidy neighbourhoods, if you have a project we can help with or sponsor we would love to hear from you!

Litterpicking equipment designed for you

The environmental product collection has been carefully selected and designed for varying users and terrains, and each addition plays an important part in our Litterpicker family...whether our Graptor dinosaur or our robust Ranger, browse through our Product pages or our Product Range Guide to find what you need.

Our Environmental Sales team are always here if you require any product or campaign-related guidance.

Please do get in touch if we can help - we have staff in Head Office as well as in the field, so let us know if you require a visit or just a chat. We look forward to speaking to you!
