Balloons come under the category of rubber in this report. The good news is that, rubber only counted for 1% of all rubbish collected. 73.1% of this 1% consisted of gloves, shoes and thongs. Balloons did not even rate their own category, or in fact, a mention, at all. Having said that, balloon litter is still being found in our environment and perhaps our aim for a zero result is over optimistic, but still a very worthwhile goal.
