Tell your friends you found something dirty on the internet

What's your dirty little secret?

What do you really hope nobody finds out? Maybe something your mates know about but you’d never want your gran to know? Maybe you wear your pants three days in a row, steal food from the fridge or pick your nose and eat it? Do you leave rubbish on buses or at the cinema, or hidden behind lampposts – risking an £80 fine? Or worse? Here’s your chance to finally come clean.

How do you tell us your secret? Well, there are two ways to do it: Start by connecting to Facebook, grab a photo of yourself, then either choose one of the secrets below and click on ‘Submit my secret’ and you’ll go on the Wall of Shame straight away! Or if your secret isn’t on the list then click on ‘Tell us your own’ followed by ‘Submit my secret’. Give us 48 – 72 hours to get over the shock and check it's fit to show on the Wall of Shame.

No more dirty little secrets

Your dirty little secret could lead to you being fined. The penalty is £80 and if you don’t pay it, you may be prosecuted and risk a fine of up to £2,500. Local Authorities or the police can give out the penalties when they spot you leaving litter anywhere that’s not a bin (putting it near a bin counts too). What’s counted as litter? It can be anything from cigarette butts, food and drink packaging or chewing gum to banana skins and apple cores. 

Why is this dirty little secret such a big deal? Well, apart from it just looking a mess, litter can attract rats and seagulls, damage cars, cause fires, put off tourists and disrupt businesses.

It can take years for fruit peel and plastic to decompose. Did you know that a little cigarette butt can take more than a decade to decompose, whilst spreading toxins that pollute water and harm wildlife? And it’s costing taxpayers £53 million a year to tackle litter and flytipping.
