Sherburn High School has teamed up with Selby District Council to tackle littering.

More than 200 posters have been shared with primary and high schools, including Sherburn, across the district to encourage everyone to stop dropping litter.

The posters will also be displayed in parks, play areas and green spaces across the district, many of which have seen a surge in visitors during Covid-19 lockdowns.

Miriam Oakley, Sherburn High School’s headteacher, said: “Our High School is an important part of our local community and we know that the issue of litter matters to our students and our neighbours.

“We’re delighted to be able to display these posters to remind everyone to look after their local area and take their home or put it in the bin.”

The signs, designed to shame litter droppers, ask people who might consider dropping their rubbish: ‘Why are you littering?’

Leader of Selby District Council, Coun Mark Crane said: “We’re using these posters to remind everyone to make sure they clear up after themselves.

“Wherever you are, dropping litter is not acceptable.”
