Reasons for littering

Research and experience have shown that litter is the result of individual behavior—choosing to litter or being careless in the handling of waste. And once litter is on the ground, it attracts more litter. A clean community, by contrast, can discourage littering and improve community appearance and quality of life.

How to solve littering

Littering can be solved in many ways,for example:


1. Pick up litter when you see it.

     Even if you only pick up one piece of litter per day, you’re doing something to promote a cleaner planet.

2. Add more rubbish bins(or places to throw rubbish)

     One of the most common reasons why people litter is because they don’t have a place to put their trash. It may be a poor excuse, but this also means adding more trash cans and receptacles could solve the littering problem.

3. Anti-littering campaigns

Anti-littering campaigns speak a lot and provide relevant knowledge about the environmental costs of littering, eventually addressing some of the problems.“Keep the environment clean and tidy” programs and community clean up events can be a lot of fun and are sufficiently valuable in spreading the message. The campaigns can also be incorporated in bulletin boards, social media platforms, and newsletters to spread the message widely. 1 example is the "Keep Singapore Clean Movement" in Sinagpore
