Government action for cleaner streets

MP SUPPORTS NEW PLAN TO CLEAN UP LOCAL STREETS

Meg Munn MP has backed new Government plans to improve the quality of our public spaces and to clean up local streets.

 

The Government has launched a consultation aimed at reducing fast food litter. Fast food operators, local authorities, major land owners, enforcement agencies and other interested parties have until 30 January 2004 to give their views on the proposed Voluntary Code of Best Environmental Practice for the fast food industry.

Meg Munn is a keen supporter of this initiative. She said:

"I think we’ve all had enough of fast food wrappers and cartons littering our streets. This new consultation is about finding better ways of keeping the streets of
Sheffield clean. Fast food companies and individuals need to take responsibility for reducing waste and keeping our neighbourhoods cleaner.


”This Code will be good news for the public, fast food operators and local authorities. Ultimately its aim is to make public spaces cleaner and safer to visit, live and work in. The draft Code should allow fast food operators, together with local authorities, to reduce litter and waste without adding significant extra costs to the industry.

 

”Improving the environmental quality of our public spaces impacts directly on people's quality of life and the way they feel about their community. This is an effective way of making a practical difference to our local neighbourhoods.”

The draft Code gives practical advice on how to keep within the law and encourages creative thinking around the issues of litter management, using examples of existing good practice. The plans centre on good waste management, food hygiene and clearing the outside of premises at the close of business, to successfully reduce fast food littering.
          

ENDS
