Incorrect disposal of chewing gum is a significant issue for many local authorities. It is an important and emotive issue for local residents as carelessly discarded gum can be costly to remove.

.
Promoting a behaviour change among gum droppers through local campaigns helps create a cleaner, more attractive local area that residents, visitors and businesses can enjoy. The website gumlittertaskforce.ie introduces the Gum Litter Taskforce and explains how they are making this behaviour change happen, as well as giving you the opportunity to get involved with the campaign.
