Here’s a piece I made for StaffsLive recently about litter on the streets of Stoke-On-Trent… enjoy!
People from Stoke-On-Trent have been complaining about littering in the street and some believe that the council don’t do enough about it.
In 2006 the City Council first started a campaign to tackle the issue saying there would be zero tolerance on those found littering in the streets. This campaign was re-launched in 2009 with £50 fines introduced.
But people say this isn’t working.
One local told StaffsLive: “The council don’t spend enough money tidying [Stoke] up.” “Newcastle [is] a lot cleaner”
Others suggested that the scheme doesn’t work because there aren’t enough people to enforce it.
