Litter and littering in England: data dashboard

The government’s approach to understanding the extent of litter and littering in England.



These dashboards provide an overview of litter and littering in England, using data available. The ‘dashboards’ cover data on litter from 5 angles:

  • litter on the ground (including beach litter)
  • public perception of litter
  • cleanliness of public places
  • involvement of the public in doing something about litter
  • the cost to the public of keeping the streets clean

All data refers to England only.
