From litter to marine environment - just what is that journey?

Defra has commissioned the University of Plymouth to review the terrestrial sources of litter and their pathways into the marine environment.

As part of this work, we are conducting interviews (40-60 mins) with members of local council waste teams, particularly those involved in kerbside collection or street cleansing.

The interview is completely anonymous - neither you nor your council will be named. The aim is not to compare councils/areas, but to take a broad look at litter and the factors which might affect it (e.g. environmental factors, wildlife, household behaviour) in the UK.

Interviews will be conducted online in early March. If you are interested or wish to find out more please contact Dr Winnie Courtene-Jones winnie.courtene-jones@plymouth.ac.uk
