Have you noticed how much cleaner the streets are since lockdown shut down businesses? Your average litterbug with his/her bag of fast food remains and containers have not been able to deposit their waste. I have a solution. 

At each point of sale whether by drive through or pay at counter there should be facilities to have details of purchaser printed. This can be done by plate recognition or production of debit card details which is the recorded with date  time and car registration/ last 4 digits of debit/ credit. Then it is up to the driver or car owner to properly dispose of his litter. If found, The same applies to the debit card holder. Environmental Enforcement officers may then investigate and prosecute before fining offenders. 

Use powers of a similar legislation like the seat belt law to enforce- I.e. it is upto the driver to ensure waste is not ejected from his vehicle just like it is the drivers responsibility to ensure the wearing of seat belts by from seat passengers.

Perhaps to penalise car drivers and card holders would prevent the majority of littering by users of all those who blatantly flout the Litter Act. Then our streets and neighbourhoods would improve. Take pride in your town!
