The O2 phone shop on Fargate in Sheffield city centre has been accused of leaving huge piles of rubbish behind their shop, adding to the litter problem in the city. A pile of waste has built up in recent weeks, leading to problems with vermin and the spread of rubbish throughout the street. The Sheffield Star has reported that John White, who works at Cutlers’ Hall in the city centre said: “This rubbish has been lying around for a few weeks. You would think this sort of behaviour would be stamped on quickly.”
Misunderstanding between Waste Company and Landlord
A spokesman from 02 has responded to the complaint and admitted that they were responsible for the rubbish. John Mailey from 02 said “Unfortunately, there was a misunderstanding between the waste company and the landlord, who manages the collection of waste from our shop, resulting in a missed collection. The problem has been resolved and the waste cleared. We apologise if this may have caused any inconvenience.”
As house clearance Sheffield experts, Clearance and Clean Up have noticed that Sheffield city centre has been plagued by unwanted waste and rubbish recently, most of which lies around for weeks before it is removed. There has also been an issue with the homeless ripping open the bin bags in their search for food and valuables, therefore spreading the rubbish around further.
A Nation of Litter Bugs
Unfortunately, litter is a problem all over the UK. According to a recent survey by Keep Britain Tidy, almost two thirds of us are litter bugs. However, only 28% are actually willing to admit that they drop their rubbish. A massive £1bn a year is spent on collecting litter in England alone, and the survey expressed particular concern over the amount of littler created by cigarettes, fast food, soft drinks, sweet and chocolate bar wrappers and crisps packets.
Keep Britain Tidy
Keep Britain Tidy was created 60 years ago, and wants more government action on litter instead of leaving it to local authorities. Some councils hand out hundreds of fines a year for littering, while others tread more carefully because of negative publicity. More than 63,000 fines were handed out in councils in England in 2012.
