Litter Intelligence

Visit Litter Intelligence. We need accurate litter data to better understand the problem so we can optimise solutions, and inspire action for a litter-free world. Browse recent litter surveys submitted by Citizen Scientist ‘Monitoring Groups’ for detailed results on the nature and quantity of litter found at each survey area.
