RECYCLING & RUBBISH

Please be conscientious with all litter, especially ring-pulls from cans (which can cause terrible harm to the cattle and horses). Don't drop fag butts - if you smoke bring a portable ashtray. Designate one person from your camp to oversee litter and be responsible for checking the area when you pack up.

Take your bin bags to the skips please
