What is LItter and Waste?

Litter and Waste

Litter is always caused by people. It is waste in the wrong place which ruins the appearance of our towns and countryside. Litter has many forms and many sources, from sweet wrappers thrown on the street to a dumped bag of rubbish. Authorities spend millions of Euros every year on cleaning the streets of Ireland.

Household and commercial waste production in Ireland has increased dramatically in the last twenty years. Landfills all around the country are under severe pressure, shileour non-renewable resources are being exhausted at alarming rates. The amount of waste produced has increased over the last decade to about three million tonnes (3,000,000 tonnes).

We are trying to change the way people think about litter and waste in our area.
