Teenagers and litter
August 14, 2019 1:04am CST
What is it about the young and throwing litter down. I live right in front of a park where there is a large football/netball court. It is usually occupied by teenagers especially later in the day even after dark. I can never believe the amount of litter they throw down. The park has two bins and one is situated right by the court and yet still they throw their bottles, cans and sandwich wrappers all over the grass. We have council workers who come and pick it up every couple of days but they shouldn't have to. I was thinking, don't parents teach their kids not to throw litter about any more? My granddaughter often stuffs her wrappers in my bag but at least she's not throwing it on the ground. Are we raising a generation of litter bugs?

I actually really hate it when people throw their litters anywhere and shamelessly. I grew up knowing it’s not right. It has been inculcated to us in school through GMRC subjects. Some kids nowadays think the streets are their rubbish bin. If it was my kid I’d give it a lot of scolding for sure.
