Littering

Tackling Littering

After dropping a wrapper and foil from a cigarette packet, Mr Adtham Zia Ali of Hurst Grove, Bedford was issued a fixed penalty notice as part of Bedford Borough Council’s zero tolerance approach to littering.

 

Mr Ali failed to pay the fine, and so the case was referred onto the Courts. Mr Ali was found guilty of littering in his absence, and was ordered to pay £427.70, including a fine of £100, costs and a victim surcharge.

 

Cllr Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for the Environment said “We take a proactive approach to tackling this offence, with officers authorised to issue fixed penalty notices when they see someone littering. We have issued over 250 fines for littering in 2017 alone, and we will keep working to enforce against this alongside a wide range of enviro-crimes.”
