Council’s new fly tipping campaign
A campaign to target fly tippers and people who drop litter in North Lanarkshire is running on buses, signs and billboards.
It asks people to do the right thing, put litter in a bin or take it home and ‘don’t be a tosser’by dropping litter.
The adverts also state that fly tipping is a criminal offence with a penalty of £200, while anyone caught littering faces an on-the-spot fine of £80.
“Most people don’t want to see litter or rubbish dumped in their communities, but sadly there is a minority who don’t care and expect others to clean up after them,”said Councillor Michael Mcpake, convener of the infrastructure committee.
“Our campaign makes it clear their behaviour is unacceptable, and we will take action against anyone caught littering or fly tipping.
“We are also asking residents to report anyone they see fly tipping, helping us identify those responsible by providing vital information including vehicle registration numbers and descriptions of individuals involved.”
To report fly tipping, call Northline on 01698 403110.
