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.
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.
