- Small pieces of chewing gum stuck on pavements
- Cigarette butts thrown into storm drains
- Bags of fast-food waste being thrown out of cars
- Plastic bottles and cans being dropped or left in communal green spaces
- And fly tipping… which carries a hefty penalty for convictions
The good news is research shows that people are less likely to behave antisocially, drop litter and even commit crime when their surroundings are well kept, this is why we work hard to not only maintain but improve the quality of our natural green spaces. There’s plenty of ways you can help out, you don’t have to live here – you might work in the city, go to a school in Chelmsford or just visit the city a lot.
