Animals are attracted to discarded rubbish which brings them closer to the dangers of fast moving traffic.

Food for thought

Did you know that litter isn’t just paper, plastic, and glass? Food waste is also a type of litter and poses a danger to the wildlife living close to our roads.

Food and food packaging are dangerous
to animals because:

  • they attract animals to the roadside, exposing them to traffic risks
  • animals can choke or be poisoned by discarded food
  • they can be trapped or injured by food packaging such as plastic bottles and metal cans
fastfood wrappers

Litter not only poses a threat to wildlife, it looks unsightly, puts our people at risk when they collect it and diverts time and money that’s better spent on improving the road network.

Please find a bin or take it home with you.

It’s only natural

to think food waste is safe but it is not part of an animal’s natural habitat. By taking your rubbish home or binning it you can help too, keeping the roads moving and making the roadside a safer place for wildlife.

How rubbish is disposed of
greatly impacts wildlife.

On average, the RSPCA gets 10 calls a day about animals affected by litter. This number spikes in the summer months. They estimate that the actual figure is much higher as injured animals are not always found. Find out more about how littering harms animals
