THE FINANCIAL FACTS

The annual £1bn wasted on the UK government’s current inefficient management of litter & fly tipping leaves us drowning in litter, killing or injuring 70,000 animals a year and makes us statistically one of the most littered nations on earth.

By adopting our approach, Britain could be cleaned up overnight and the costs reduced to £383 million. 

That’s an annual saving of £617m!

That could be used for one of, or a combination of the following:-

20,000 police

16,000 nurses

7400 doctors

10,000 social homes 

Enough is enough and this madness must stop now.

What is Needed?

A uniformed and structured approach is urgently needed across the nation that is delivered on as a “ONE WAY AND ONE WAY ONLY” policy that cannot be ignored or deviated from.

Our target is to achieve over 100,000 signatures from UK citizens in order that we can force this matter to be taken seriously in Parliament and appoint a Litter Minister or Litter Tzar to deliver the programme.

By signing our petition, you are supporting our aim to force the government to change the way they tackle litter in Britain by adopting these 5 key actions across the nation: -

Educating The Nation – Embedding a public information film and awareness campaign across the country and ensuring that all schools are on board with showing this at school assemblies.

Setting Standards That Show We Care – Adopting a zero-tolerance littering policy whereby all litter is picked up every day and maintaining Grade A, litter free standards in line with the law and DEFRA Litter Code of Practice already in place.

Enforcement Of The Law – Setting examples across the country with clear visibility to the public that enforcing of fines for littering and fly tipping is in place and being done. Tapping in to evidence from the vast network of traffic cams and CCTVs and encouraging the public to post footage of littering offences caught on mobile phones and dashcams. Enforcement is to also include issuing Litter Abatement Orders for fly tipping on private land and if not cleaned up, action taken immediately by the authorities to do so.

Eliminate Fly Tipping – Simplifying the recycling rules and multiple coloured wheelie bins to one standard across the country. Changing and unforming the rules and relaxing the restrictions at all recycling centres that will then allow homeowners to dispose of household waste including the use of a van or truck to do so.

Embracing & Adopting an Innovative Approach – Giving the public one free app to use to report litter and fly tipping and turning clean up teams into “smart teams” adopting a proactive, reactive and innovative approach working out in the field using live updates via reports from the public direct to smart tablets to tackle litter and fly tipping in real time and maintain high standards everywhere. The addition of introducing technology such as high-powered driveable litter vacuum trucks for keeping verges litter free and roads swept of debris also equipped with sign washing equipment to keep traffic signage clean and visible will also ensure areas remain spotless and costs are reduced due to less staff needed.
