Litter

Littering in a public place is not only unsightly but it is also an offence. If you are caught dropping or leaving litter, you may be issued with a £80.00 Fixed Penalty Notice or prosecuted. This can easily be avoided by using the litter bins provided or taking your rubbish home. It is worth noting that chewing gum and cigarette butts dropped onto the ground are also considered as litter. However, whilst in isolation the size is small and may appear insignificant, the cumulative effect is massive and as such Herefordshire Council takes a robust approach towards such littering. Herefordshire Council works closely with Amey in order to keep Herefordshire clean and tidy.

 

Although not a regular occurrence, if you find a discarded syringe or needle in the community please do not touch it. Simply contact us immediately and let us know the location of the item so we can arrange for it to be quickly collected and removed.

 

However, if you find a syringe, needle or drug paraphernalia within the grounds of an educational institution, please report it immediately to staff on the premises who are trained to deal with such matters.

 

If you identify an area where litter has accumulated and is causing concern you can report it to Herefordshire Council by calling 01432 261761 or E-Mailing info@herefordshire.gov.uk. Alternatively you can contact Amey Streetscene directly on 01432 261800 or streets@herefordshire.gov.uk.

 

You can also report sightings of large pot holes, due the the severe cold weather recently to StreetScene.

I blaim the perents for not bringing up there children to put litter and or chewing gum in the litter bin. Also school should take an active part in training kids to put litter into a litter bin.
