Love Norfolk Hate Litter

A county wide call to action, for a cleaner county. Tied in with the Love Norfolk Hate Litter facebook group and with the backing of Norfolk’s Deputy Lord Lieutenants, launched the Love Norfolk Hate Litter campaign.

We asked the people of Norfolk to pledge to litter pick themselves when out in the county, to join local groups and for businesses to take steps to reduce litter near their premises.

A litter pack for Norfolk schools was created teaching the next generation to act against litter.

All of Norfolk’s councils joined Hertfordshire’s #Srapflytipping campaign, the first councils to do so in East Anglia.

The campaign focuses on householders and businesses making sure that they dispose of waste properly and check anyone paying to take waste away is reputable and has relevant licences.

The campaign has continued into 2020 outlining the enforcements the local councils have taken to tackle flytipping.
