Litter Control Tips

tip #1

Always put your trash in a proper container. If one is not available, hold on to your garbage until you find one.

tip #2

Use a litter bag in your vehicle.

tip #3

Use returnable, reusable or refillable drink containers or bring your own cup.

tip #4

Reduce and reuse as much as you can before you recycle.

tip #5

Support community cleanups, recycling programs, legislation and other efforts to reduce litter.

tip #6

Get the support of your neighbourhood. Successful litter control must be a continuous, ongoing effort which involves the entire community - from youth to seniors, business, community groups and the media. Organize a committee to develop a plan of action.

tip #7

Participate in organized cleanups and/or join the Adopt a Street or Park program.

tip #8

Set a good example. Don't be a LitterBug and inform others about the detriments of littering.
