The Little Book of Litter

In 2012 Keep Britain Tidy used the latest research and insight to bring together in one place - everything you need to know about litter, littering, who does it and why.

The Little Book of Litter will be useful to anyone wanting to understand or address the problem of litter. In particular, it will be useful to those working for or with local authorities, social housing providers and other land owners or management organisations in tackling the issue of litter, both in terms of addressing residents’ perceptions of the issue and the issue ‘on the ground’.


About Keep Britain Tidy

Keep Britain Tidy is an independent UK based charity with three goals – to eliminate litter, end waste and improve places. This means more to us than just picking up litter. It means creating clean beaches, parks and streets. It means creating sustainable practices and eliminating unnecessary waste.

It’s about working with people, businesses, organisations and public bodies to care for the environment on our doorstep. We fight for people’s right to live and work in places they can be proud of and prosper in.

The Green Flag Award is managed under licence from the UK Government by Keep Britain Tidy and delivered international through our network of country operators.
