Do You Have Chewing Gum Litter Problems?

No matter how hard you try to tidy streets, pavements and other surfaces are often spoilt by discarded chewing gum that’s very difficult to remove. This creates an eyesore, especially as the gum darkens with dirt, and it can also stick to footwear and clothing, proving a menace for visitors and the general public.

The Gum Litter Taskforce

To remove chewing gum stains on high streets and public places, Keep Britain Tidy has put in place the Chewing Gum Task Force scheme, awarding a grant to councils across the UK.


Not only has The Chewing Gum Task Force approved forty-four grants totalling over £1.7million in the first year of the scheme, but they will invest up to £10 million over five years to help reduce chewing gum pollution to help tackle the ongoing problem of gum pollution.

Clean your streets in record time

By combining our specialist technology and the expertise of our dedicated engineers, our Chewing Gum Removal Machines guarantee the removal of any materials and substances that have become attached to the ground, seating and other surfaces in seconds.


Our EcoGum range can remove thousands of pieces of gum per day from Tarmac, Block Paving, Concrete, Natural Stone and many more, even entrance matting!


Specifically designed so that there’s no need for high-pressure hoses whilst eliminating unwanted spray into surrounding areas, Ecogum has a continuous operating cycle of 4-8 hours depending on the chosen unit. What’s more, it uses only eco-friendly detergents, meaning that the entire process is kind to the planet and has no negative effects on the environment.

  • No Water Spray – So there are no gallons of water everywhere!
  • No pressure washing – The discarded gum is vaporised, so the gum doesn’t get washed away into drains also causing no damage to any surface.
  • Completely silent – Cleaning can be carried out at any time day or night!
  • No need to barrier off areas! – The Ecogum is fully portable, housed in a self-contained backpack allowing our operator complete freedom of movement to remove discarded gum from any area. There is no trailing leads causing no danger or disruption to the public, making it suitable when working in both populated and busy areas.
