Litter

Litter is a very big problem in Northern Ireland. People are either too lazy to put their litter in the bin or simply don’t care. There are plenty of litterbins provided by local councils, but not enough people use them.

Litter looks untidy, costs million of pounds to clean up, attracts flies and rats and can be dangerous to people and animals. Broken glass can cause serious injuries, plastic bags can choke pets and farm animals, and small animals like mice and shrews get trapped in bottles and starve to death.
