South Norfolk Councillor calls for vigilance to tackle A140 newspaper litterer
A South Norfolk councillor has called for vigilance after a spate of littering on the A140.
South Norfolk Council says an individual has been regularly throwing newspaper out of a vehicle while driving between Dunston Hall and Newton Flotman.
Cllr Kay Mason Billig, said: “This person is wasting our time, damaging our environment and spoiling our countryside, and ultimately, we are having to spend Council Tax payers’ money to clear up the mess they are making.”
“If anyone sees this happening, please take a photo, or take down their number plate, if it is safe to do so.”
South Norfolk Council has said parish councils are on high alert and keeping an eye out for the offender.
Any evidence sent to the council will be used by the Council’s Community Protection Team and could help to prosecute the culprit.
“We work alongside our communities to keep South Norfolk looking clean and tidy," added Cllr Mason Billig.
“We have just finished our biggest community litter pick to date, where over 2,000 local people have collected thousands of bags of recycling and rubbish and every week, we cover thousands of miles, hand collecting over a tonne of litter.
“We are proud to live in such a beautiful part of the Country and we work hard to keep it that way, please if you do see something, let us know.”
You can report littering to the Council’s Community Protection Team on 01508 533723.
