No rubbish at the seat - instead it's been put in the sea.

From seat to sea - litter dumped in west Mayo town

FROM seat to sea.

The new 'option' for someone dumping litter in Newport.

Newport Tidy Towns had requested people enjoying seating around the town to take their rubbish, such as coffee cups and cans, home with them or to pop it in the bin.

They even erected a polite sign at one hot spot, hoping to get the message through.

Sadly, instead of being left at the seat, litter has instead been disposed of in the nearby sea.
