What is Litter?
Litter is rubbish or waste that has not been disposed of correctly such as:
- Cigarette butts
- Fast food packaging and empty wrappers
- Bottles and cans
- Paper and cardboard
- Drug litter
Litter makes Blaenau Gwent look untidy and pollutes our local area. It ruins the environment, endangers our wildlife and costs the taxpayer money.
