Lit­ter­bugs face fines

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

A TWO-MONTH lit­ter blitz across the area has re­sulted in a swag of fines and warn­ings for peo­ple caught throw­ing lit­ter.

Forty-one lit­ter­ing fines were is­sues across the Black­town lo­cal gov­ern­ment area, and dozens of peo­ple were given ver­bal warn­ings.

The blitz fo­cused heav­ily on lit­ter­ing from ve­hi­cles, in the Black­town and Mt Druitt cen­tral busi­ness dis­tricts and at rail­way sta­tions.

Cig­a­rette butts were the most com­monly lit­tered item and the most fines were is­sued for this of­fence.

En­force­ment of­fi­cers will con­tinue to look­out for lit­ter­ers and is­sue fines.
