Gordon Henderson on ‘Litter Angels’

Written by on 21/02/2019

Gordon Henderson, Swale’s MP, popped into the studio to talk about ‘Litter Angels’, a charity set up by him 10 years ago to address the issue of littering. ‘Litter Angels’ encourages young people to understand the anti-social nature of littering. The charity works with local primary schools to get the message across to our youngest generation. The hope is that young people can influence adult behaviours by highlighting the damage littering does to the environment and wildlife. Gordon said the charity works in partnership with Swale Borough Council, McDonald’s and Keep Britain Tidy. He spoke of the problems of changing behaviours and in getting people to take their rubbish home or dispose of it correctly. He also spoke of the impact council charges for disposal of certain household items have on the rise of fly tipping. For more info on Litter Angels contact: info@litterangels.org
