Say NO to litter!
Local groups here in Cornwall are working within
their communities to prevent littering - and making a difference!
On these pages you can see how our North Hill Project is more than litter picking - it's about the three Ps:
Picking, Prevention and Partners
Litter is degrading the environment here in Cornwall and across the UK. It causes problems for wildlife, and our beautiful county is suffering!
We find numerous drinks bottles and cans - water and soft drinks as well as alcohol. Please recycle!
You can read here about the parish litter picking volunteers, the litter problems, and essentially how the community is supporting the project which is essentially about preventing littering. in the first place.

We have recently been asked about fly-tipping, so here is some advice taken from the Cornwall Council website:
Fly-tipping (the illegal dumping of rubbish or bulky items on land not licensed to receive it) can be dangerous, pollutes land and waterways and costs the council tax payer significant amounts of money to clear away.
Please report fly-tipping to the council.
You should contact the council if you see someone fly-tipping or to report fly-tipped waste; in both cases, provide as much detail as possible about the location of the fly-tip.
You can report Fly-Tipping online at the council's website www.cornwall.gov.uk and type “fly-tip” in to the search box, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Environmental Management contact centre on 0300 1234 141.
