Cornwall's Litter Crackdown
12:32pm 14th October 2014
The Colonel cracks down on litter in Cornwall.
KFC in Bodmin is writing car number plates on food wrappers as customers use the drive-through.
It is so officials can track down the people chucking rubbish.
Mayor Andy Coppin says he has had a string of complaints from locals: "Not just around the site but it's the outlying areas, the lanes that go out from KFC we're starting to build up an enormous amount of KFC litter so we wrote to KFC and asked if they would do something about it.
"Please don't drop it. I'm incredibly proud of this town. I've lived here all of my life and there's nothing worse than seeing litter. I actually stop and pick litter up and I know other people do as well. We all want to live in a nice place so why make it horrible."
Phil Barton from Keep Britain Tidy added: "It's notoriously difficult to bring to book people who litter from vehicles. It's a major issue and it's really not acceptable and it can cause major problems.
"If somebody buys a meal and then drives two or three of four miles and then puts it out the window when they've finished with it then it's not really possible for them to deal with that. So, this is a way of tracking back the problem to the person who caused it."
