Litter and accidental fires
Nobody likes litter in our open spaces, but what you may not realise is that certain types of littering can increase the risk of fire. Here are some quick tips
- items that can reflect sunlight, such as bottles (particularly glass) should be taken with you
- ensure cigarettes are completely extinguished in proper cigarette bins or if safe disposal isn’t possible, take your cigarette ends with you and dispose of them safely
- remember littering is against the law and could land you a fine. Littering does include dropping cigarette butts and chewing gum.
