War on grime continues into New Year

23 Jan

Hounslow Council and its partners' clampdown on litter continued last week, with seven offenders issued with £80 fines, bringing the total to 17 since the new ‘get tough’ approach was launched in November 2013.

The fines were issued during an operation by Hounslow Highways and Police officers in Hounslow High Street and Kingsley Road.  

Councillor Colin Ellar, deputy leader and cabinet member for environment, said: “It’s a New Year but there will be no let up in determination to clampdown on litter louts, trade waste offenders and flytippers to make our borough cleaner.” 

Hounslow Highways Service Director Rob Gillespie said: “It is clear some people believe that our street cleaners are solely responsible for keeping the borough tidy.

"Although they work hard to clear up after people, it is up to everyone who lives, works and visits the borough to take responsibility for their own litter.

“It is unfortunate that we have to issue fixed penalty notices but until the behaviour of those who litter changes, we have no choice. The message is simple: if you litter you will be fined.”

The continuing clampdown includes CCTV cameras deployed in flytipping hot spots to run alongside an intensification of street cleaning by Hounslow Highways.
