People seen dropping rubbish can be fined up to £150 on the spot

New powers come into force today for councils as part of a bid to better tackle littering. People seen dropping rubbish can be fined up to £150 on the spot, almost double the previous levy of £80. Councils can also use the littering penalty against vehicle owners if it can be proved the offending item was thrown from their car. The cost to councils of cleaning the nation’s streets was almost £700m last year. “A strong message to those who think their laziness is more important than the environment in which they live.”
