Chewing Gum, A Piece Of Litter That's Hard To Clean

All forms of litter are disgusting, but discarded chewing gum is perhaps one of the most annoying pieces of litter to clean. It cannot be cleaned with regular litter removal methods; it requires specialist equipment to remove.

Chewing gum has strong adhesive properties which means that, no matter the weather the chewing gum will remain stuck to the ground. This can be very annoying, especially for an unsuspecting passerby who accidently steps on a piece of chewing gum and has to spend a long time cleaning it off their shoe.

The fines for chewing gum litter can be very severe. In 2014The Bolton News reported that a man was chewing gum and spat it out onto the pavement outside of Bolton college. A litter patrol office saw the man spitting out his gum and he was issued with a £50 on the spot fine. However, the man in question did not pay his fine and as a result he faced a fine of £600 and £245 court costs.

Those littering in the streets now may face even more severe on the spot fines because in 2016 the Telegraph reported that the fines for littering could be raised to an amount as high as £150 and the minimal amount of £50 could be doubled to £100.

Whilst steps such as adding more rubbish bins can help to reduce the amount of litter, if you find yourself with chewing gum litter that needs removing and you are searching for a professional chewing gum removal service, give BKP a call.

A Professional Graffiti Removal Service

Graffiti is a problem that affects many areas. One of the most well known types of graffiti is in the form of spray painted tags, but as The Crime Prevention Website says graffiti can be “any inscription, marking, writing, painting or drawing, illicitly scratched, scribbled, drawn, cut, carved, posted, pasted sprayed or painted on any surface'".

Graffiti can carry serious consequences. Under the Criminal Damage Act “A person who without lawful excuse destroys or damages any property belonging to another intending to destroy or damage any such property or being reckless as to whether any such property would be destroyed or damaged shall be guilty of an offence."

Under The Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, an authorised officer of a local authority canissue a penalty notice for graffiti. The details regarding the penalty notice can be read here.

In 2016 the Metro reported that a man was sent to prison for 17 months for graffiti. The man in question climbed a cliff, and left 10 feet tall graffiti tag on the Avon Gorge in Bristol. This graffiti cost £20,000 to remove.

For some graffiti is just an eyesore, however for others graffiti could possibly affect their business, for example if a piece of graffiti is offensive or racist. The Crime Prevention Website also wrote in their prevention section that “the most important thing to do is to remove the graffiti as soon as it appears".
