Clear up fag ends

Firms will have to clear up their waste including fag butts from outside their premises – or face new fines. Penalties of £80 already exist for individuals but will be extended. The Environment Department is widening the type of buildings which ‘Street Litter Control Notices’ can be applied to: All eating and drinking venues, along with offices will be required by local councils to clear up the area immediately around them. Firms who fail to provide bins for butt ends face a fixed £110 penalty.
