Keep Britain Tidy will be working with 13 councils this weekend in an experiment to reveal the extent of litter problems.
As part of its Which Side of the Fence campaign, litter dropped will be left on show and not removed as normal at 25 locations, while being cleared from adjacent sites.
The idea is to confront people with the reality of the litter problem, which the campaign group said cost £1bn to deal with.
Participating councils are:
- Lambeth (Clapham High Street)
- Diss Town Council (Diss Park)
- Northumberland (Ashington Station Road)
- Ashfield (locations in Hucknall, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Kirkby-in-Ashfield and Jacksdale)
- Bournemouth (Horseshoe Common)
- East Devon (Exmouth town centre)
- Mansfield (Market Square)
- Nottingham (King Street and Queen Street)
- Wellingborough (Church Street)
- Calderdale (Halifax and Brighouse town centres)
- Darlington (Market Square and Stanhope Park)
- East Hertfordshire (locations in Ware, Bishops Stortford and Hertford)
- City of London (Bishopsgate)
