Wandsworth Council has increased the maximum fine for littering from £100 to £150 as part of it's zero tolerance approach to littering.
Increasing the maximum fine sends a clear message that dropping any litter, whether it’s a crisp packet, cigarette butt or sweet wrapper is unacceptable. Those caught are able to pay a reduced fee if paid within 10 days of issue.
Cllr Steffi Sutters, Wandsworth Council's environment spokesperson, pointed out that, "More serious fly-tipping offences will continue to be dealt with by prosecution, as will anyone who fails to pay a fixed penalty.”
