Litter

​​​​​​​​Managing litter is everyone’s responsibility. Litter is unsightly, dangerous and reduces everyone’s enjoyment of the environment.

Managing litter starts with education and awareness about the litter problem. We can all make a difference by making better choices about the type of packaging we buy, how we dispose of our rubbish and what action we take upon witnessing illegal dumping.
