The Train Wood litter pick takes place at the 12-acre woodland in Norwich, which borders the River Wensum on the northern side of the city and sits alongside the start of Marriott's Way.
It can be entered via the Barn Road roundabout entrance.
The litter pick, organised by the Friends of Train Wood and Marriott's Way, takes place on Saturday, June 16 from 10am-noon.
