For some, that may include fairly lightweight pieces of rubbish, including plastic bottle or food cartons or smaller items such as cigarette ends and chewing gum. For others, it may be heavier items, like glass, wet carboard, newspapers or waste that could pose a risk to health, like bio hazard, PPE litter face masks, wipes, disposable gloves, or even dog mess.
- Plastic (bottles, packaging, crisp packets, bags, chewing gum..)
- Paper (including cardboard, newspapers, magazines, coffee cups, fast food wrappers)
