Signs everywhere

signs for ; 

volunteers- 'this area has been picked by volunteers'

Frank and honest 'don't be a tosser' or similar.

E.g Checklist of why you are littering 'I'm a jerk' 'mammy still cleans up after me' 'I don't care about nature' etc (these have been down by a council in Neath)

at the side of the road 'this road cost £X to cleanse last year' 

'please report littering offences caught on dashcam' 


Why the contribution is important

Because signs make people 'think' 

even if it only works on half the people that's still half the litter on the ground. 

It will also put the power back to the people. Let them do the enforcement  (making sure it's followed up by at least a letter to the litterer) aka 'Big brother is watching'

    I agree. The more signs the better to keep reminding people to put their litter in a bin. We also need signs along the main roads to remind people to take their litter home. I have lost count of the number of times that I have seen rubbish thrown out of cars. Some notorious littering spots e.g by Tesco might benefit from CCTV.

    I agree. Signs could also state the fine for littering as a deterrent. Also agree with more CCTV. So many cars drive up Hospital Road and Leigh Road throwing their drinks cans, McDonalds/KFC packaging out of the window rather than take it home for recycling. I pick up litter regularly and by the next day it’s just as bad.

    Maybe the camera in Mac Donald’s car park etc can be used for fines

    Good idea. Seems to work to some extent in other areas.
