Specialist officers will be cracking down on people who litter on the streets of Bath and North East Somerset.
From the start of March, uniformed patrol officers will be fining people who deliberately drop rubbish up to £150.
Bath and North East Somerset Council says from March 1st "litter and dog fouling enforcement officers" will work across the region.
Under a 12-month agreement, company 3GS will provide enforcement officers who will work from 7am to 7pm seven days a week.
The Council says as well as issuing fines, the uniformed officers "will also prioritise education and prevention to help people understand that littering is a criminal offence and will not be accepted in Bath and North East Somerset".
