New service launched to 'clean up Hart'

Published at 6:00am 8th May 2017.

A new service has been launched in an attempt to 'clean up Hart'.

Environmental Enforcement Officers will now take to the streets of the district to catch offenders caught littering.

They'll be able to hand out fines of £75 for anyone caught littering, including cigarette butts and chewing gum.

Seperately, £50 fines will be given to anyone failing to clean up after their dog.

The council has also been allocated £5,000 to fund education and awareness raising, as well as to provide new litter bins.

Speaking about the scheme, John Elson, Head of Environment and Technical Services at Hart District Council, said: “We work hard to help keep the district clear of litter and we hope by introducing this new campaign, we can encourage people to stop littering and to keep Hart even cleaner. 

“We are encouraging local community groups to report persistent litter and dog fouling ‘hot spots’ by filling in an online reporting form on our website, so we can target problem areas.”
