Roadside Litter Prevention Project

WA naturally thanks you roadside litter prevention project

Did you know that roadsides are one of the most littered sites in Western Australia? Studies show that about 40% of all items of litter in Western Australia are found on roadsides and this makes up 70% of the total volume of litter. These studies also show that nearly 70% of this rubbish is made up of food and beverage items like food wrappers and drink bottles that have been thrown out of the windows of vehicles. Pretty sad hey.

So, what can we do about it? It seems pretty easy; just don’t throw your rubbish out the window as you zoom along! Keep Australia Beautiful Council (KABC) and Main Roads WA are here to help by providing free resources and info to make it easy to reduce litter on our roadsides. There are free, compostable car litter bags available from service stations and roadhouses in regional WA and you will see some signage appearing on roadsides with Western Australian wildlife asking you to KEEP WA litter free.

Check out the links below and happy litter free travels!
