Hey guys, i know you've been through alot of litter problems and such stuff. But recently my school is startin' up a "green" campaign which needs people to give ideas for how we can stop OUR school's members to stop littering and the neighbourhood around. I've got lots of people in my neighbourhood who litter and don't seem to care for what they did, yet they complain and get frustrated over people 'accidentally' litternig outside their doorstep. So far i can only think of 1 suitable way to make these people stop which is to have the community head or somthing(something like a person in charge of the village but this guy is incharge of the neighbourhood) to Force everyone into the mood to pick up litter whether they like it or not... it affects them anyway.

How about penalities for littering? 10 Dollars per offence and more for repeated offences. The money could be used as a reward for volunteers who clean up litter.
errr.... in my country Littering once gets u Fined $5000 but most people get away for it.... they don't even care for fines :(

I agree that giving out tickets to those who litter is the best way to stop the problem, the money could be used to get a better cleanup system crew to do the job.
When I visited Paris last year, I was quite impressed how they managed to get entire streets clean in mere minutes well before most people even got out of bed in the morning.

promote recycling. put differnt binns to schools, even class rooms etc.
lol thats a funny.... my school has over 10 bins laid out everyone and the cleaners have to pick the cans and bottles out from the rubbish bins to pile it in the recycling bin..... good idea thou..... i think we should show a historic movie about the plague or somthing which was caused by garbage and see if the ppl respond to it...

There are many measures to counter littering:
*Enforcing the regulations by local police *Promotion campaigns in local media & community events about the negative effects of littering and positive sides of recycling *Organizing volunteer program in local communities to gather litters off from the streets, perhaps raise money through sales in fairs to fund this. *Teaching environmental responsibility in local schools, for example 1 hour per week/two weeks and making visits to environment facilities (like recycling center) *Appeal to local politicians for giving more funding on recycling and setting up cargabe bins
It all starts from pre- and grammar school level. If children aren't taught at home nor in school for environmental responsibility, it's not like they will care in the future or teach it for their children.
