Case Study: The Darwen Litter Trap


This case study is part of a specially written series focusing on our local action projects. They are designed to show you how some of our best projects were delivered. Each case study provides background information, examines the original project idea, methodology, funding information, looks at who was involved, and draws out lessons learned from the experience. We hope these case studies will prove useful and inspirational, especially for those delivering similar work. This case study focuses on the Darwen Litter Trap project at Hoghton Bottoms near Blackburn, Lancashire. The project installed a groundbreaking litter trap on the River Darwen to catch litter thrown into the river upstream in Blackburn and Darwen.
