Two people caught and fined for littering in Walsall

Published on

Two litterers have been successfully prosecuted for dumping takeaway waste and cardboard in Walsall.    


The two cases, which were captured thanks to Walsall Council’s CCTV cameras, were brought before Birmingham Magistrates' Court by the council’s Community Protection Team.

Michael Manley of Lichfield Road, Walsall, threw down litter in High Street, Pelsall, on 19 October 2023. Manley was fined £220 with surcharges of £88 and costs of £85, totalling £393.

On 15 October 2023, Hafeez Jawad of Thorpe Road was caught on CCTV for throwing dumping litter on Woodwards Road. Jawad was fined £220 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £88 and costs of £85, totalling £393 on 20 March 2023.

“ These prosecutions send a clear message that littering will not be tolerated in Walsall. We take pride in maintaining a cleaner and healthier borough and urge our residents to dispose of their waste responsibly.

The actions of a small minority can have a significant negative impact on our environment and our communities. We are committed to using all available means to tackle littering, and this includes utilising CCTV footage and I thank our Community Protection Team for bringing offenders to justice. The fines imposed by the court should serve as a strong deterrent to anyone considering littering in Walsall. “

Councillor Garry Perry, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Resilient Communities at Walsall Council
