  • 3. 

    If you see a crisp packet on the floor by a bin what would you do? Which one do you like?

    • B.

      Check that it is safe to deal with and then pick it up and put it in the bin

    • C.

      Leave it there - the council will pick it up

    Correct Answer
    B. Check that it is safe to deal with and then pick it up and put it in the bin
    Explanation
    If you answered 'quickly pick it up and put it in the bin' it's great that you are prepared to pick up somebody else’s litter to keep the area clean, but please stop and check that it is safe to do so first. If you put 'leave it there - the council will pick that up' - this is also correct, the council will pick up litter left on the street, but, when it is safe to do so, picking up litter and disposing of it correctly when you spot it, can really help keep your area clean and deter others from littering. Little and often can make a big difference.
