Bristol City to consider l;evy on late night traders – UK

Bristol City Council to consider EMRO and late-night levy.

Charging bars and restaurants a late night levy is being contemplated in cities and towns like Bristol across the UK to pay for the mess alcohol-imbibing patrons create by littering the streets after dark. Newcastle has already opted for such a levy.

These type programs are really the only way forward to control a problem that has been left far too long.  It is very unsightly to walk past a night club or late night pub the next morning.  How a club owner cannot feel responsible for this litter his patrons made is unquestionable.
