Rotherham Council’s litter crackdown continues

Rotherham Council’s litter crackdown continues

Offenders leaving litter in Rotherham are set to be hit with fines of £150 from April with private sector contractors set to continue enforcement through a new shared services model with neighbouring Doncaster Council.

Rotherham Council’s “Time for Action” initiative involves enhanced environmental enforcement to target issues such as littering, dog fouling and fly-tipping. The authority has an environmental crime bill of around £1.7m a year.

As part of a trial, Kingdom Security were contracted in April 2017 to patrol known key hotspots and issue fixed penalty notices to anyone caught committing an environmental crime such as dropping litter.

Alongside the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), the action is targeting Rotherham town centre to help improve the environment and change perceptions.
