Local authority, waste contractor or facilities management companies all hold a duty of care to keep our streets clean and public areas clean. The types of litter most commonly found:
- Plastic (bottles, packaging, crisp packets, bags, chewing gum..)
- Paper (including cardboard, newspapers, magazines, coffee cups, fast food wrappers)
- Cigarette butts
- Dog poo and other hazardous waste
Tackling litter scattered on pavements, carparks, greenspaces, beaches, rivers and motorways – we need to turn the tide. By recycling just 50% of all Litter thrown on our streets today, we could save £14.8million pounds every year – or £40,547 a day!
