Litter reduction initiatives  -

Collecting litter around the school


  1. Designate Litter Collection Zones (see the below map):
    • Divide the school premises into designated litter collection zones. Assign specific areas to individuals or groups to ensure comprehensive coverage.
  2. Provide Adequate Litter Bins:
    • Place sufficient and strategically located litter bins throughout the school grounds. Ensure that bins are easily accessible and clearly marked.
  3. Differentiate Waste Streams:
    • Use color-coded bins to separate different types of litter, such as recyclables, general waste, and organic waste. This encourages proper waste sorting and recycling.
  4. Implement a Buddy System:
    • Encourage students to work in pairs or small groups when collecting litter. This promotes teamwork and ensures safety, especially in larger areas.
  5. Supply Necessary Equipment:
    • Provide individuals or groups with gloves, litter pickers, and trash bags to facilitate safe and hygienic litter collection.
  6. Establish a Schedule:
    • Create a regular schedule for litter collection to ensure that the task is consistently addressed. This can be daily, weekly, or as needed based on the school's size and traffic.
  7. Educational Campaigns:
    • Raise awareness about the impact of litter on the environment through educational campaigns. Share information about the importance of proper waste disposal and its contribution to a cleaner, healthier school environment.
  8. Monitor Hotspots:
    • Identify and monitor litter "hotspots" where trash tends to accumulate more frequently. Focus additional efforts on these areas to address the root causes of littering.
  9. Implement Incentives:
    • Create incentive programs to motivate students and staff to actively participate in litter collection efforts. This could include recognition, rewards, or friendly competitions between classes or groups.
  10. Integrate Litter Awareness into Curriculum:
    • Incorporate lessons or activities on the impact of littering and the importance of waste management into the school curriculum.
