Litter In Sheffield?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm... :huh:


Not wishing to turn this into a competition for who has the oldest wheelie bin in Sheffield, but...


... mine has 1992 moulded into the lid, and is still functioning perfectly! :)

 

But then unlike some on here, I tend to use it for putting my rubbish in and not for purposes for which it was never designed! :roll:

Not everyone is like you, the city is full of their rubbish.

I use my bin for our rubbish and for other people rubbish who leave it on our road.

What it is people who drive to the edge of the countryside with junk food, stuff their faces with it then throw all the packaging out of the window 😡  ???

McDonalds, KFC and Red Bull are all regular offenders but seriously who drives to a remote spot with a packet of Maltesers cake bars to admire the view then left the packaging I found behind? I’m starting to think them eating this rubbish causes brain damage

Why would any sane person drop litter?

Presumably it's mainly the young "adults" 🤣 whose Mummies still wipe their backsides after they've done "No.2".

Expecting someone else to clean up after you. Same principle really.

Yep, I’m sure that’s right and there’s often a bit of laziness and entitlement before people grow up properly. Bottles and cans getting flung out car windows isn’t a new thing but driving  to the countryside to eat junk food seems to be 🤮🤮🤮🤮

It goes largely unchallenged by those witnessing the offence.  You can't blame them for not challenging the perpetrator, as a torrent of abuse and / or aggressiveness often follows. 

 

The police can't enforce it,  as they are short-staffed and the SCC Civil Enforcement Officers will be in the City Centre seemingly hiding in shop doorways, waiting to pounce on a compliant-looking individual for discarding their cigarette but in the gutter.

 

I occasionally collect and dispose of litter strewn on my road by people of all ages, and from their vehicles too!  I have challenged many of them, but I don't suppose they have a conscience about it at all.  I have had lots of debates with some of them who are confident enough to engage.  Few of them seem educated enough to engage in conversation at all!

 

As I said in another post, the police lost the streets years ago and it will take more than another generation to get them back.
