Campaign For a Better World.
Love Your Chelmsford supports anti-litter campaigns to raise awareness and protect our environment. Litter hurts wildlife, it’s ugly and unhealthy, and it costs Chelmsford taxpayers thousands of pounds to remove each year. That’s money that could be spent on helping families who are threatened with homelessness or helping local small businesses. You could help us by following the Love Your Chelmsford Facebook or Instagram page and sharing our campaigns with your friends.
Litter that causes a problem in Chelmsford includes:
- small pieces of chewing gum stuck on pavements
- cigarette butts thrown into storm drains
- bags of fast food waste being thrown out of cars
- and fly tipping… which carries a hefty penalty for convictions
All littering offences, big or small can equal a fixed penalty fine. For example, littering personal waste in a public place, like dropping a crisp packet or plastic bottle in a park is a £150 fine there and then. Click here to find out more.
