'Take your rubbish home' plea as staggering cost of roadside littering is revealed
Throwing litter out of your vehicle is irresponsible and illegal, but that doesn't seem to stop people from doing it as they drive through the Chiltern District. So much rubbish ends up on the roadside that the Chiltern District Council waste contractors, SERCO, have to return to some main roads every eight weeks to clean it all up.
To pick up the 80 tonnes of litter that is dropped on Chiltern roadsides each year it costs the tax payer around £200,000.
Added to this is the risk to wildlife which can get caught in rubbish or even eat it, resulting in injury, poisoning and death.
