Litter facts Litter can be as small as a sweet wrapper, or as large as a bag of rubbish, or it can mean lots of items scattered about. More than 100,000 trolleys go astray from supermarkets each year. Many end up obstructing paths, spoiling beauty spots or polluting rivers and ponds. The yearly cost is some £5m nationally.
This is how long some litter items take to decompose naturally:- Cigarette butts: Up to 2 years Orange peel/banana skin: Up to 2 years Plastic bags: 10 - 20 years Tin cans: 50 years Aluminium cans: 80 - 100 years Plastic bottles: indefinitely
