The litter police would have had a field day yesterday evening on the lower Oxton field at the side of Aldi in Prenton. I walked our dog there this morning and the area around the exercise equipment, bicycle track and even inside the fenced off kiddies playground was strewn with litter of all kinds and there are three bins in the immediate area that they have to pass to leave the field, all of which were empty. Judging by the litter the offenders were children/youths, wouldn't it be good if one of the group leaders said, "Look, this isn't right, let's tidy up", but I suppose that's not regarded as "cool". Luckily the area is blessed by a local resident who takes it upon himself to clean up the litter every morning, also a few of the regular dog walkers and myself take carrier bags to pick up glass bottles to prevent injury to our dogs and children, but we shouldn't have to. It certainly makes a dropped cigarette butt pale into insignificance.

It comes under the environmental protection act so littering any outdoor property without the landowner's permission is an offence.

The relevant part of the act is written in relatively clear English compared to many other acts.

If it blows onto public i guess.

I think that is more for say rubbish in gardens or even commercial reasons like mcdonald's and such.

They would normally need video evidence as proof i guess, where as mcdonald's has logos.

Followed by one on west Kirby beach towards red rocks this evening. Probably Saw we were eating ice cream cones and heading away from the bins. Was going to throw apiece to the seagulls glad I didn't now. I know some people don't eat all the cone --wonder if he would have done me if I had crushed the end of the cone into tiny pieces --is there a minimum size that constitutes litter.

Sorry, I don't get this. Don't drop litter. It's lazy, antisocial, disrespectful. Then you don't need to look in case someone is watching you, or memorise an act of parliament, or look for some technical loophole. All of which is harder and more time consuming than just not dropping litter in the first place.

Quite agree but would you be upset if you were fined for feeding the ducks with bread at the park or throwing peanuts for the squirrels or an apple core into a hedge in the country. Think the arguments are more over the targeting of people who for so long (because of no prosecutions) have thought it ok to stub out a fag end on the pavement and walk on. Its also the fact I don't specifically want to be followed by someone filming me --in the hope that I might litter--had I thrown a piece to the seagull could I be prosecuted if it didn't eat it and it fell on the sand.

I expect the park pond will have an indication as to whether or not to feed the ducks - and often there is a problem of uneaten bread floating on the surface, which is an eyesore an attracts rats. And come on, how many people do you see walking down the street throwing peanuts to squirrels?! As for seagulls, they are a serious nuisance in many areas precisely because people feed them. But all of this is just looking for pernickity little ways to criticise legislation intended to stop something that is lazy, antisocial and disrespectful.

realistically what can the do if you just ignore them, and don't give them any detail? I know they have you on video, but unless they know who you are, I cant see anything they can do. Not like the police are going to launch an investigation armed with the video.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not condoning littering.

As usual it's not been thought through. Of course its antisocial to have a vehicle in the road for months "under repair". However a tyre change should be allowed as "emergency"; it would be laughed out of court. What about the "tyres on the drive" companies who will replace tyres at, or outside, ones house? How about the Kids who discard their tinnies in the road or peoples gardens?
It's all associated with reasonableness, its the discarding of rubbish that should be stopped. not legitimate actions which leave no mess behind.
No worries there aren't enough police anyway and the litter "operatives" only come out in daylight

IF Asked your name and address and you refuse you are committing an offence. If you give false details this is also an offence. And they are entitled to take your picture to prevent none payment.

Personally it all stinks for me

I guess there will be a Wirral Most wanted web page lol and a reward to grass up the individuals caught on camera.
Probably no reward but hey ho. . . . That's business

I guess there will be a Wirral Most wanted web page lol and a reward to grass up the individuals caught on camera.
Probably no reward but hey ho. . . . That's business


I don't drop litter and never have. But i'd be quite tempted to do so in front of one of these "enforcers" just to ignore them when confronted haha.

If I knock his little book from his hands, so he DROPS it, is he then committing an offence ?!

Not entirely true, they do not carry warrants and so it can't be an offence to refuse to give details, however ..... they can ask for assistance from the police and detain you until the police arrive (as can any citizen), government guidelines state that this can be up to 30 minutes.

Further details on a couple of other points raised......

To issue a fixed penalty notice on private land they should first ask for permission of the landowner or occupier.

The government has not lifted its FPN guidelines which states ...
Quote:
Give offenders the chance to pick up litter before you issue an FPN. Warn them that you will issue an FPN if they don’t.
