    It's laziness – pure and simple. I'm not sure if the problem itself is getting worse, but the attitudes seem to be. There are calls here in SBS for more bins to be put on the beach, but that would only make a difference for a minority of days every year and therefore pretty much a waste of time, money and effort. As well as general littering and leaving stuff where they left it, people see a full up bin and put their bagged up rubbish next to it – ready for the seagulls or foxes to rip open and feed off. Just take it home and use your own bin?

      My mate threw one of the parking tickets from the Churchill square car park out of my window last week, i turned the car around pulled over and made him pick it up.

      Absolutely no excuse for littering it makes my blood boil.

      Parts of Prague are beautiful, parts of Prague are rough, but a lot of regeneration going on. My mother when she visited, commented in Zizkov, how clean it was, which took me by surprise, as Zizkov is one of the rougher suburbs. Didnt understand what she meant, until visiting Brighton soon after. The difference in litter is incredible. I notice all the time now, that the streets, and pavements are pretty clean here

      Yesterday me and a mate took a few beers to Swanbourne Lake (Arundel ) for an afternoon on the hills surrounding the lake. After walking up the big hill that overlooks the whole lake we were greeted with almost the entire hill covered in Mc Donalds cartons, plastic bottles, beer bottles/cans, spent fireworks and used disposable BBQ's. It amazes me how shit people have become in their attitudes

      We ended up spending 1/2 hour clearing it all up (in carrier bags they kindly left behind)

      Really sad how inconsiderate society has become regarding nature and overall empathy for the environment and others...
      These are those young Corbyn voters who live in their own little fantasy world of high wages, music festivals and drugs.

      I think if the police were plain clothed and saw anyone walk away from a pile of crap that they had seen them leave, they should taser the scummy gits.


      I doubt that they would do it again and word would spread.

      Several months ago at one of my local parks in Worthing I was with my sons, having a picnic. There was another young family who rocked up - two parents and a child, around 4-years old. They had a takeaway of some sorts and sat down on the green to eat it. When they got up, they left every single piece of rubbish they had - brown bags, tissues, wipes, plastic forks, etc. - on the floor. They WALKED PAST A BIN which was yards from their car, which they got into and drove off. I then, with the help of my boys, then cleared up their mess. I literally had to walk to the bin which was yards away from where their car was parked.

      It is awful to see someone chuck a can or fag packet or any litter in to the gutter any time, but when they're yards from a litter bin, AAAGGGHHHH!
      Having spent my formative years as a Council Gardener litter-picking, people lazily just dropping their rubbish is one of the few things I get a little worked up about. I was waiting in my car a few years ago outside the Brighton Centre when another car parked behind me. I saw the driver throw a cigarette packet out of the window. Risking a potential fracas, I got out of my car and said to him "Do you live in Brighton?" to which he replied "No". I said "WELL I DO, SO GET OUT, AND PICK UP YOUR F****** RUBBISH AND TAKE IT BACK TO WHERE YOU LIVE AND CHUCK IT THERE INSTEAD YOU DIRTY B******. HOW DARE YOU LEAVE YOUR S*** IN MY HOME TOWN!"
      Sheepishly, he got out of his car and did as I said. Whether this had a lasting affect on him, who knows?
      Clipped Gull is also aware of what happens if I see someone leave litter about, but I'll let him tell you that story!!

      What you see with littering in this country is thankfully the minority, and its a good thing that littering is seen as a bad thing and when you do see bad examples of it it's shocking and even sometimes newsworthy. But go to somewhere like Indonesia or Bolivia and you will find that the vast majority of people do not give two ****s where their rubbish ends up, either that, or they burn it. The problem is education, and thankfully we are on the whole pretty well educated in this country.
      You see this all the time on roads, especially where major road junctions meet.
      The A3/M25 junction is a prime example, the crap that accumulates there is embarrassing, it almost resembles something you could've made on Blue Peter way back.
      After a concert or match at Wembley is another example, people just don't give a toss!

      It is also one of the traits of human nature that I can't come to terms with - how some just feel that throwing something onto the floor wherever they are (apart from their own home) is acceptable.

      I live on the ground floor of a two storey flat. My neighbour upstairs comes outside to smoke and chucks his butts everywhere - into the front garden which I maintain on his behalf and into the bushes shrubs and the pavement outside our property. When I've cut the grass and tidied up I collect the newest butts and put them on his doorstep. The problem stops for a while but then starts again after no doubt he's been mindful that it is a problem for me. I've got to do the garden again soon and will do the same - am hoping that he comes home when I'm doing this as it'll give me the opportunity to point out the problem.

      I think I'd have to get an urn or something for them to use. I fell out with a neighbour once, it was horrible having to avoid her so I'm more live and let live these days (with in reason). She moved out luckily
