Anti Litter Campaign

Tunbridge Wells Borough Council spends over £1 million a year keeping its streets clean, including the removal of dropped litter.

In 2013, the Council launched an Anti-litter Campaign with a range of activities aiming to:

  • raise awareness,
  • encourage residents to take pride in Tunbridge Wells; and
  • reinforce the message that dropping litter is an expensive offence which carries a fixed penalty of £150, or if found guilty by the courts a fine of up to £2500

The educational work included visits to schools and a competition which invited pupils from all primary schools within the borough to design a poster promoting an anti-littering message.

The competition winner was Amelia Thomas, Year 5, St Johns C. E. Primary School. The winning entry will be displayed in large scale on the side of one of the council’s refuse and recycling collection vehicles from Spring 2014.

The judges choose the winning poster for its bold design and the clear message it promoted to residents to encourage them to take responsibility for their waste.

All the entries can be found on the Love Where We Live facebook page.
