Litter is unsightly and potentially dangerous. It creates unnecessary work for our teams who are responsible for litter clearance throughout the borough.
People create litter and although it is everyone’s responsibility to dispose of their waste properly there is still a big litter problem in Brighton Hill especially around the shopping Centre.
Councillor Andy McCormick organises a monthly community litter pick in the area. Its usually the third Saturday of the month but you can check on the sites calendar.
Discarded food waste attracts rats and other pests and encourages feral pigeons. Sweet wrappers, crisp packets and fast food containers pose a serious fire risk. Animals are regularly injured or killed by litter. Farm animals choke on plastic bags, birds get tangled up in fishing lines, and small mammals are trapped in bottles and cans. People throwing rubbish out of cars cause road accidents and carelessly discarded cigarette ends start grass fires, especially during dry summers.
