NEWLY recruited litter wardens issued 279 fines in their first five days of operations across Causeway Coast and Glens.

As first reported in The Chronicle two weeks ago, a year long trial between Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and private sector enforcers began last Monday (August 2).

The contract was awarded to Waste Investigations Support & Enforcement (WISE), a specialist supplier of 'environmental crime services' to councils across the UK.

And, according to the council, the firm's operatives have hit the ground running.
