The aim of the Litter-less Lough Campaign is reducing the amount of litter getting into Lough Neagh from its feeder rivers and surrounding landscape through increasing awareness raising and encouraging and supporting action.
The Litter-less Lough Campaign is part of the Litter-less Lough Project, delivered by The Rivers Trust and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund through the Lough Neagh Landscape Partnership Project. The project is supported by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and links directly with its Live Here Love Here campaign.
