Details

The yellow fish scheme is an Environment Agency project that builds on an international approach to protecting the environment. It involves stenciling a yellow fish symbol beside drains to remind people that any waste entering them may go directly to the nearest stream, river, lake, canal, beach or bathing water - causing pollution and killing wildlife.

Complete and return the feedback form with your project details.

For Wales see Keep Wales Tidy.
