Oxford city centre suffers from a high level of improper chewing gum disposal.
Discarded gum can be dangerous for wild animals and pets. It can get caught in feathers and fur and if swallowed can lead to suffocation.
What action we are taking
Wrap it, Bin it, Easy Isn't it? - that's the message we are promoting through various campaigns to tackle the problem of chewing gum in the city.
The aim is to raise awareness of the problem of chewing gum litter and encourage people to throw it away responsibly.
Fines for dropping chewing gum
If a person is caught dropping gum it is the same as littering and is subject to a fine of £80.
