Litter in Barnsley

Tuesday September 12 2017

A PRIVATE enforcement firm that targets litter bugs  in central Barnsley has been told to focus on those dropping fast food boxes and crisp packets. Is littering a problem in Barnsley? What kind of litter do you see the most of?

Kingdom Security is paid by the Central Area Council to send out officers to tackle littering and dog fouling in the Central, Kingstone, Stairfoot, Dodworth and Worsbrough wards.

Isues surrounding its performance were discussed by area council members earlier this year during talks about extending its own contract with the firm.

Questions were asked about whether the area council was getting value for money from the service and raised concern that Kingdom was taking the ‘easy option’ as the majority of littering fines were for people dropping cigarette butts.

It has now been told to target other areas of littering.
