Litter louts in Wrexham have been warned to pick up their rubbish or risk being fined by Wrexham Council.
It comes after Llwyn Isaf outside the Guildhall has been strewn with litter in recent weeks.
Now the council are working with North Wales Police to issue penalty notices to those who refuse to clear up their rubbish in the town centre.
Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Collaboration and Partnership, said: “I have held a meeting today with Police and Enforcement Officers and asked them to become more proactive in tackling the litter problem in Wrexham.
“Leaving litter is extremely anti social in behaviour and also contributes to a general lack of pride in our communities.
“Recently Llwyn Isaf and the surrounding area have been left strewn with rubbish and even though adequate bins are provided they are just not being used.
“Whilst we welcome the mainly young people who use this area, they have to accept responsibility for disposing of their litter in the bins provided.”
If people refuse to pick up their litter fixed penalty notices will be issued and if they remain unpaid there will be a zero tolerance policy and prosecutions will follow.
