School Visits Help Raise Awareness of Environment
The environmental crime team has been visiting schools across the district to talk about a range of issues, including:
- The impact litter has on our environment
- How long it takes for litter to biodegrade
- The health implications of dog fouling
- The penalties for dropping litter and failing to clean up after your dog
- What we should all do with our litter - and the need to ‘bin it’
- How dog owners should always pick up after their pets.
If you think your school would benefit from a presentation from the environmental crime team, please contact DDC at (01304) 872096, or for more information, please see the environment pages.
