Litter Management Plan
The Litter Management Plan 2019–2021 sets out objectives for the prevention and eradication of litter throughout County Clare.
The Litter Management Plan recognises that the problem of litter will not be eradicated unless a multi-dimensional approach is taken. Every sector must be involved in tackling the litter problem, the public as well as the businesses and the local authority. While there is a growing awareness of the importance to keep Clare litter free, there is still a need to change attitudes and recognise that litter is anti-social. At one level such a change can be achieved by the heightening of awareness of littering, its causes and its consequences. At another level stringent enforcement through on-the-spot fines and prosecutions may be required.
The plan sets out realisable and measurable objectives for the following:
- Prevention and control of litter
- Public awareness, participation and education
