Littering is the most common form of land pollution; so stop littering!
Land can be conserved by reducing land pollution.
What can be done to reduce land pollution?
Both land and water pollution are polluted by illegal dumping and excessive use of pesticides and herbicides. Similar methods can thus be used to control both forms of pollution.
Local authorities can impose huge fines for those caught for illegal dumping. If the amount of waste dumped is huge, jailing or even caning could be imposed. For example, in the Region of Waterloo in Canada, people can be fined up to C$5000 if they are guilty of such offences.
Campaigns and public education held by the government are also useful in informing and educating people about the consequences of littering, and in helping people develop proper waste disposal habits.
