Chewing Gum litter

The 30 million tonnes of litter dropped each year starts with a single item – and chewing gum is a particularly sticky issue. Gum makes streets look grubby and uncared for, and is even worse when it sticks to our clothes and shoes.

Each piece of gum costs 10p to remove from our streets, or more than the gum costs in the first place. With 95% of our country’s streets stained with gum, we know these clean-up costs could be better spent elsewhere.

We know this issue won’t be solved overnight, but with innovation, research and small changes in everyone’s behaviour, then together we can tackle this sticky issue.
