ABSTRACT

Littering is a problem worldwide, Ghana being no exception. The purpose

of the study was therefore to investigate the attitude of ISS 3 students in the Cape

Coast municipality towards littering. Two hundred and forty students were

sampled from a population of 2,398 using the stratified random sampling

technique. The sample comprised 120 males and 120 females. A 52-item

questionnaire was used to gather information relating. to the attitude of students

towards littering as well as their awareness on the effects of littering. The internal

consistency of the instrument was 0.83 using Cronbach alpha reliability.

The data collected were analyzed using percentages, means and

independent t-test at a significance level of 0.05. The results revealed that ISS3

students were against littering and were aware of the effects of littering. Littering

was also found to be an important environmental concern among students.

The conclusions ofthe study are:

1. Male and female ISS 3 students are aware of the effects of littering to a

very large extent.

2. Urban and rural ISS 3 students are aware of the effects of littering to a

very large extent.

3. There is no significant difference between male and female ISS 3 students

in their attitude towards littering.

4. There is no significant difference between urban and rural ISS 3 students

in their attitude towards littering.

Students indicated that they werc against littering. Such a positive attitude

would be a good starting point for more education of pupils on the topic and for

developing proper practices of waste disposal as far as littering is concerned.

Efforts should therefore be made to increase awareness among students on the

effects of littering.
