last week’s Places Scrutiny meeting Cabinet Member Peter Craske gave
advance notice of his renewed anti-litter campaign. Its
slogan Don’t be a Tosser caused a chuckle on the Committee’s top table although
I doubt it will receive universal approval.
The scheme introduces on the spot fines of £80 for littering, £50 for dog fouling and £400 for fly-tipping bringing Bexley into line with several nearby authorities. It’s a pity that Bexley no longer ensures that litter bins are emptied sufficiently often.
Bexley Council has issued a Press Release and a poster. Click the image to see it all.
