33 Tons Of Rubbish.

Post by Clive »

My fear for the UK is this, we are a yob nation, across the world societies listen and stick to the rules, for the UK the majority of people have been sticking to the rules.
But we have a minority of idiots with a large yob element, on Thursday half a million flocked to Bournemouth Beach packed like sardines no distancing and they left behind tons of rubbish, 33 tons to be exact .

Why is it people won't take their litter home, and why don't we have heavy fines for these pigs, we will return lockdown unless the kids get back to school college and uni, if they are turning up in their thousands to parks raves and beeches they can piss of back to get themselves educated.

Just bust the first group who stands up and walks away from their rubbish. The other 50k will take notice and clear up before heading back to their cars.

But how? With that many people you wouldn't know who the people are or which part of the beach they came from and which litter is theirs.

No the only thing you can do is poison the ice cream and offer people the antidote after they've cleared up 50kgs of rubbish.

:lol:

Seriously anyone who sees rubbish within 10 feet of where they are sitting on a beach and doesn’t pick it up should be fined £500.

Littering in this country is a horrendous issue as is throwing away shit we can recyle. I've received verbal abuse from people on trains for offering to take their plastic bottle or newspaper home with me for recycling when they're about to put it in the bin. Mind boggling.

The Japanese used to have a similar problem and set out to tackle it. Aggressively, through law and education. Now they're one of the cleanest nations in the world and lead the way on recylcing.

Went to Singapore years ago, no litter anywhere so good to see, UK has never tackled this problem, you would be hard pushed to find anyone who has been fined, although littering is a crime in this country,
It costs local councils a good chunk of their budget to clear up, along our major roadways when they cut back the trees and grass there is mile after mile of litter, thrown out of car windows, this all costs money to collect and dispose.

Sadly there are to many slob families who don't give a shit, it would benefit all if these pigs were fined jailed or 6 months community service, picking up litter.

There was large campaign - Keep Britain Tidy - all through the 70's which was very successful but faded away and hasn't been repeated on the same scale since.

BPC Council are making a lot of money from carparks and fines + not paying for the clean up. With the money saved by not opening or cleaning toilets, not paying lifeguards etc - they are just blaming the public and making the right noises in public.

Let's not pretend like this is an isolated incident. Litter is an issue across the UK and was before the pandemic. This is just a particularly egregious example.

Also, the council shouldn't have to be cleaning up. If you can't find a bin, take it home.

The trouble is people in this country are happy to jump on board with the massive environmental issues like climate change or mass extinction but it'd never even cross their mind to keep their local environment clean and tidy.

We need some twitter celebrities to go out with litter pickers to get the mob to do something productive for once.

Pretty much this. I have lost count of the times when at the lights a driver just lobs litter out the window.

I've seen so many masks and gloves thrown on the floor or in bushes since Covid19 started. Its outrageous behaviour.

PPE strewn about is infuriating but assume drink bottles from actually/potentially infected people are just as bad?

My country road and the hiking trail across the road from us regularly have take-out drink cups, plastic bottles and even beer cans (this past week, more of those than anything else! :x ) strewn about. I'm the sort who'd normally pick them up, pop in my backpack's side holster, and deposit into the first bin. Now ... :uhoh:

Ditto - peasants just drive up a country lane and toss their finished McD bag and shit out of the window. How hard is it to stick it in a bin when you get home??

I was on my bike at a set of lights in Chiswick years ago when some tit in a van dropped a whole bag of Maccie D's rubbish on the road just in front of me. I picked it up and launched back through the window and the guy went bezerk and was actually chasing me down the road in his van screaming at me. He followed me down a few side streets until I manged to dart down a side alley on my bike, it was genuinely frightening being chased by a lunatic.

There was a video doing the rounds a while back of someone who picked up the litter and threw it back into the car from where it had just emerged.

Maybe it was dannyfitz :shock:

I spend most of my weekends picking up litter from litter louts who leave it in our lovely woodland walks, more people have been using it since lockdown, so more litter, they could face a fine of £150. I doubt anyone has ever been fined for it let alone flogged.

The worst I’ve seen is a collection of plastic bag filled with dog shit left on a wall at the car park of a local forestry car park. Why the fcuk would you go to the trouble of picking up the shit and then leaving it on a wall?

1K upwards fine for littering depending on severity.

£500 reward for video evidence leading to a prosecution.

Problem sorted and a new show for Harry Hill to boot.

There are actually agencies who have people hide behind benches watching for people to litter/throw cigarette butts on the floor so they can fine them.

I think it's the reverse. People don't give a toss about keeping their immediate environment clean and free of pollution, especially if it means they have to do anything that even vaguely inconveniences them, so the more existential threat of climate change really is someone else's problem.

Hate seeing litter anywhere. Until recently we had a problem with flytippers dumping stuff from vans on the side of country lanes, however local farmers caught a few a while back and we no longer have that problem.
