Litter in Hull
People will be fined for not disposing of their litter correctly

More than 1,000 fines issued for littering offences since lockdown ended

Over 1,100 fixed penalty notices have been issued for littering since lockdown ended.

The fixed penalty notices were reintroduced in June following the lifting of lockdown restrictions.

Fines of £100 are issued, and then reduced to £80 if paid within seven days.

And the local authority is warning people that offenders will be prosecuted for non-payment.

For 16 offenders, this resulted in fines of £327, who were fined under section 87 Environmental Protection Act 1990:

Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for Streetscene services at Hull City Council, said: “If fined, it is always advisable to pay the initial cost. Otherwise the case will be taken to court and could result in much higher costs being incurred as a result of the additional prosecution action.

“Littering is an unacceptable and anti-social behaviour and there is no excuse for it. There are more than 2,000 bins dotted around the city and we are fed-up with the selfish minority who spoil the city for everyone.

“Keeping our city clean is a collective effort and in a post Covid-19 world we hope that the fines will deter people now more than ever from littering, helping to keep our city as tidy as possible.”

The schemes will support the creation of new sustainable jobs, sustainability of the local transport networks and the development of new homes.
