The Star today names and shames more than 50 litter louts convicted of blighting the city’s streets.

Between them the 52 offenders have been forced to pay more than £8,000 in fines and costs, after their cases were dealt with by Sheffield magistrates.

All were caught dropping litter on the city’s streets between February and May, but failed to pay £75 on-the-spot fixed penalty notices handed out by council officials.

The litterbugs were then prosecuted and fined by the court.

Today Sheffield Council chiefs pledged to continue cracking down on litter louts, and naming and shaming those responsible, as a deterrent to others who fail to simply put their litter in a bin.

Coun Jack Scott, Sheffield Council cabinet member for environment, recycling and streetscene, said: “Our council officers have issued nearly 700 fixed penalty notices for littering since January.

“Everyone needs to understand that dropping litter is not acceptable in Sheffield and I’m determined to show we are serious about keeping the city clean.

“Littering can blight parts of our city and so I am pleased the court has supported our efforts to take firm action against those who show no respect for our communities.

“Cracking down with tough penalties like this acts as fair warning to others who spoil our city. The vast majority of people help by using the litter bins we provide and we will be continuing our zero tolerance approach to take tough action against all those who drop litter.”

Littering is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Where an offence has been committed and spotted by council officials, offenders are obliged to give their name and address. It is an offence to fail to give the details or to give false details.

Fixed penalty notices of £75 can be issued on the spot, but Sheffield Council discounts that sum to £50 if paid within 10 days.

Those who fail to pay are prosecuted.
