Bryan Lodge, Cabinet Member for the Environment and Street Scene at Sheffield City Council, said:  “These cases once again show that the courts support our efforts to keep Sheffield clean.

“Because of our commitment to tackling litter we are expanding the service to carry out more enforcement across the city. This will not cost the council anything because we have come to an arrangement with a contractor who will provide staff at no financial cost to the council.”

“But I would call on everyone not to throw their rubbish in the first place.”
