Private firm to issue litter fines
A PRIVATE company is set to start handing out fines to litter louts and people who fail to pick up after their dogs.
An external team of litter enforcement officers has been tasked with patrolling the city and county by Swansea Council.
This will be of no cost to the local authority as the enforcement company will benefit from the fines.
June Burtonshaw, Swansea Council's cabinet member for place, said: "We plan to carry out much more enforcement."
She added: "We will not tolerate littering."
