    Yet another case of dealing with the effect of a problem rather than the cause. How about introducing on-the-spot fines for dropping litter? And make it doube for cigarette butts and chewing gum. Persistant offenders should be made to do community service at the local rubbish tip or have their gardens/letterboxes filled with waste on a regular basis.

    The more you go round cleaning up after these selfish idiots, the more acceptable they'll think it is to behave like it.

    What a line from the council....

    The very worst grotspot buildings and derelict sites have been identified as a priority for action, with those that cannot be refurbished in time hidden from view.

    So they're going to have holograms in front of most of the derelict buildings and properties all over Liverpool?

    "come to liverpool and count the hoardings, behind each one is a fantastic building being left to rot'

    On the spot fines and cctv are already in operation across the city to tackle litter etc. The council have also installed hundreds of new bins over the last few months. As the video editorial stated people need to start doing their bit by looking after their properties and not dropping litter.
    The council are also cracking down on landlords who leave empty buildings to rot for years by giving them deadlines to either demolish or renovate the buildings. A recent example is the king edward pub near costco.

    At the end of the day it's the people of Liverpool that drop litter so it's our responsibility to stop and start taking pride in our city, no matter where you live.

    I agree that people should respect the city and not drop litter, deface
    buildings etc, but unfortunately, they will not take any notice, as for on the
    spot fines,yeah right, what figure are we talking about ?, and how will it be
    paid ?. Really it has to be cash, as issuing a fixed penalty notice will have no
    effect at all, just look at all the unpaid court and parking fines....
    Did you know that people can get a council community skip to put all the
    rubbish in. We had one delivered and within 20 mins, it was overloaded.
    It was colected the next day and of course to get the net over the skip
    the driver had to remove some of the stuff, just left it on the pavements
    a few phone calls and they came and cleared up, see pic,s

    If anyone has any rubbish they should just call bulky bobs. They take everything from washing machines to ironing boards free of charge, as it is a council ran initiative.
