The Covid littering survey – has it got worse?

Littering is an issue for communities up and down the country.

Littering is an issue for communities up and down the country.

It’s also something we at InYourArea want taken far more seriously and is why we’ve partnered with Clean Up Britain for the Don’t Trash Our Future campaign.

But while most of us attempt to make the best of the difficult times we all currently find ourselves in, it seems a careless minority still hold the belief that others should clear up after them.

We’re asking you to take part in our quick survey below – or here – to help us understand if littering has got worse during the pandemic, particularly with discarded facemasks becoming a more and more common sight.

You can also help by supporting Don’t Trash Our Future and signing our petition. We’re aiming for 100,000 signatures so we can lobby for changes we and Clean Up Britian believe will help tidy up our country.

The campaign has two main aims – to raise the maximum on-the-spot fine for littering to £1,000 and to make it compulsory that councils enforce the law on littering in their areas.

You can sign the petition here.
