    Litter is an issue all over this country. I used to think it was because there weren´t enough bins, but I´ve seen people drop litter right next to a bin. I´ve occasionally asked people to pick it up and get met with abuse. No idea why people just drop their rubbish, but they do. Not just youngsters, either.

    I think their mentality is that somebody else will come and clear it up.

    Old see dog is sort of right in a way, but fast food places such as Macdonalds do have to accept that their packaging is more likely to be dropped. It would be good PR for them to employ somebody who clears up around the area, but of course the last thing they want is bagloads of rubbish coming back to the store, so they also decide it is somebody else´s responsibility.

    Don´t really know how to easily change this mindset. Perhaps one solution would be a deposit system, like there used to be on bottles. You pay 20p extra for the packaging, and that is refunded if you bring it back. Maybe the person buying the food will not bother over 20p, but somebody who needs the money might find it´s a way to earn a few quid.

    There are theoretically fines for littering, but nobody seems to get fined apart from the occasional smoker or the famous one where somebody was fined for dropping a tenner. So if the stick approach is not working, maybe the carrot approach would give better results.
    And I thought "The old see dog", was boring."
