Council's "Just Bin It" campaign against litter continues

A weekend's worth of litter collected from our district's streets

Lancaster City Council continues to encourage us all to have pride in where we live this month by cleaning up our patch and putting litter where it belongs…. in the bin!

The council's district wide ‘Just Bin It’ campaign was launched in Market Square, Lancaster last month with a jaw dropping display of all the carelessly discarded rubbish that was picked, swept and sucked from the centres of Morecambe and Lancaster following a busy weekend of shopping and revelling.

To spread the word on the street that litter is everyone's problem - just bin it, the council’s litter enforcement team is currently out and about issuing golden tickets worth prizes to people who show some pride in where they live and on the spot fines worth £80 to those that don't.
So watch out – you could be the next lucky, or unlucky member of the public, depending on whether you drop it or bin it!

The council are also keen to help local people and community groups roll up their sleeves and get involved in making the district and wonderful place to be for everyone.

• If you want to know how you can show how proud you are of where you live and need some assistance in putting litter where it belongs, visit www.lancaster.gov.uk/binit or join the campaign on Facebook: www.facebook.com/lancastercc or Twitter@Lancastercc.
