Every week, tens of thousands of volunteers are out fighting the blight of litter. An army of litterheroes working to help preserve local neighbourhoods.
Not only does Litter make where we live look ugly, litter is a threat to wildlife and public health. Pitching in and cleaning up some litter is an easy way for anyone to help out; at any age.
It makes sound financial too – as an extension to local litter collection services, develops pride and love into your local neighbourhood. Everyone is a winner!
For one Local Authority in the West Midlands:
- £16,326 of sustainable litter collection equipment purchased
- 50,424 hours of Litter picking activity completed in one year
- Equivalent Council manpower cost £504,240
