General litter

We all agree the £1 billion spent every year cleaning our streets could be better spent elsewhere. The 30 million tonnes of litter dropped every year starts with a single wrapper. And tackling the issue also starts with lots of small steps, adding together to make a big difference.

It's Still Littering

^

We've launched a new intervention, developed by our Centre for Social Innovation, to help local authorities tackle 'careful littering'. The intervention serves as a gentle reminder that, whether it's ‘carefully’ placed or simply thrown on the floor, It’s Still Littering.

Bin it for Good

^

By transforming bins into charity collection pots, Bin it for Good incentivises people towards doing the right thing with their litter by offering local community benefits. The idea is simple: more litter in the bins and less on the ground, means larger donations for local charities.

Don't be a tosser

^

Littering from vehicles is a significant problem up and down the country, which results in our roads, countryside’s and waterways being spoilt and looking untidy.

How big is the problem?

  • Highways England collects approx. 200,000 sacks of litter from the strategic roadwork every year, or about 7,500 tonnes.

To assist local authorities we have developed our Don’t be a Tosser campaign which has a hard-hitting message to drivers and their passengers that our roads are not one giant litter bin and that the owner of a vehicle can be fined up to £150 if rubbish is seen being thrown out of a car window.
