Council launches litter campaign

Did you know the Council spends more than £920,000 a year cleaning up Fareham?

Tackling litter is one of our key objectives and that's why we are launching a litter campaign aimed at changing behaviour.  

There are three strands to the campaign, each one a problem area:

As part of the campaign, publicity activity will be taking place with events and activities planned across the Borough. You may spot one of our newly branded litter lorries out and about carrying anti-litter messages. Later this month residents will be able to get their hands-on freebies to help them dispose of the cigarette ends or chewing gum in a responsible way, keep an eye on our social media for updates.

The Council can issue on the spot fines of £80 to those seen littering.

Councillor Tiffany Harper, Executive Member for Streetscene at Fareham Borough Council, said: "Most people dispose of their rubbish responsibly but like any area, Fareham does have litter hot spots and we can always do better. By highlighting the damage caused by littering we hope to encourage more people to do the right thing and save money."

ENDS
