Litter and Waste

Jersey is a beautiful island. Reducing litter, which harms wildlife and costs money to clear every year, will help us to preserve the environment for future generations.

Talking with your child about what they can do to prevent litter from spoiling the environment or endangering wildlife will provide valuable reinforcement to the work that is going on in your child's school. We need all children and young people to become good citizens of the future.

The Beautiful Jersey campaign will provide you with a lot of information to help you talk to your child about litter and how to dispose of this in the right way.

Reducing the use of single use items, reusing or recycling them also helps to protect the environment. You can do this with everything from bottles to clothing. Find out more from the links below.
