Litter is most commonly assumed to include materials associated with smoking, consuming food, confectionery or beverages that are improperly discarded and left by members of the public. Litter affects our communities dramatically with over 30 million tonnes of litter being collected from our streets every year costing council tax payers £858 million a year to clean the streets of England.
