When you are outside enjoying Devon’s amazing natural spaces please look after our incredible environment and follow the Countryside Code – #RespectProtectEnjoy.

  • Respect everyone you meet
  • Protect the environment
  • Enjoy the outdoors

Litter has a negative impact on our beautiful countryside and represents a risk to wildlife and livestock; it can also be a fire hazard.  So carry off what you carry on.  Come prepared, bring a bag and take your litter home.

Your rubbish your responsibility. Find a bin or take it home.
