Litter spoils our neighbourhoods. It can encourage crime and attract pests. Litter costs Councils thousands of pounds to clean up.
Litter is against the law and anyone caught littering could be fined up to £75.
We support campaigns to reduce the litter that is created in Bath and North East Somerset.
These are difficult and expensive to clean up. We issue postcards to areas where cigarette butts are prevalent, to remind people to stub them out and bin them properly.
Gulls can be noisy and aggressive and rip open bags of rubbish in their search for food. Please go to Seagulls to find out more about the Council’s campaign to tackle seagulls.
We offer litter assemblies and child friendly litter leaflets. We can support schools that want to carry out their own litter picks by lending them equipment (please go to litter picks to find out more). Go to Keep Britain Tidy for Keep Britain Tidy’s free school resource pack.
