    Gum Tax


    DADGUMMIT!!!!! Why must it be America's fault that you have gum on your streets?

    Is the gum getting to be this big of a problem for maintenance? How do they figure the exact cost of cleaning up gum in streets?

    Sounds like a good idea if the money does go towards cleaning up. The streets are disgusting in places here because of gum.

    I always throw my gum in the bin.

    If gum is to be reclassified as litter does that mean on-spot fines will be enforced on people who spit their gum onto the pavement? I hope so....

    i think the solution is attaching miniguns to the cctv in town centres then turning anyone chewing gum into a bloody mulch

    Are cigarette butts classified as litter there?

    I always thought anything you threw on the ground that should be put in a trashcan was litter, and I would include gum and cigarette butts in this. We do get fined for littering, but it is hard to police all places at all times.

    A lot of gum on the ground would be irritating. Some places here may have a problem with this, too, and I have just not read of it.

    Where do you stop the taxing for the clean up? I see a lot of plastic shop bags, such as walmart bags at times.....do we tax those?

    Are you not already paying a city tax for street maintenance?

    You could probably mulch, and the gum still be the only thing left.....on the street.

    There was talk of some sort of tax for shopping bags if I remember correctly.
