We have launched the next phase of our anti-litter campaign with the strong message:
Throw Litter away? Then cough up and pay.
People are being urged to consider the consequence of littering. When you drop litter, you could be throwing away your money with an £80 on the spot fine if you're caught.
We have three Litter Wardens and nine Enforcement Officers operating in Belfast, and in the last year we've fined over 1,800 individuals for littering.
Our anti-litter ads will be displayed throughout the city on ad shells and buses and there will be radio advertising too.
Listen to our anti-litter campaign radio adverts:
We run other anti-litter campaigns alongside our school and community outreach programme. These include:
Have you met our anti-litter gang?
We have a whole gang of
anti-litter buddies. If you see our friendly Litter Pig, Steve the
Sweeper or Scoop Dog out and about, having fun spreading the anti-litter
message, you can get involved too.
You may also see our Singing Street Sweepers in the city centre or at events throughout the year.
Why not get your photo taken with them and help spread the anti-litter message by sharing the pictures with your friends?
You can also email us your pictures.
No smoke without litter
Are you a business that has a cigarette litter problem outside your premises?
We can issue legal notices and fines to businesses who don't deal with the litter created by their business. We can also prosecute businesses who do not comply with the legal notices or fines we issue.
To help your business deal with cigarette litter, we've produced a free 'No smoke without litter' pack.
The pack includes:
- pocket ashtrays for staff and customers
- a brush to sweep up cigarette butts
- anti-litter posters.
Simply call us on 028 9032 0202 extension 5239 or email us to sign up and we’ll send you everything you need.
