Litter is an eyesore to everyone, young or old. It costs taxpayers in England and Wales over £450 million to clear up more than 30 million tonnes of litter.
In Cannock Chase the most common types of litter found in neighbourhoods include smoking related litter, followed by fast food related litter, confectionery and drinks related litter - alarmingly drugs related litter is becoming more and more common too. It is not surprising therefore that litter is one of the main reasons as to why Britain has a rat population of over 60 million and any person is no more than 10 metres from a rat at any one time.
It is because of these and many other reasons that Cannock Chase Council together with other Local Authorities through England and Wales have decided to get tough on litter and the louts who drop litter.
