Environmental pollution : Berlin anything hardly against cigarette waste

Almost a thousand Times in the year will be elected in Berlin and Brandenburg, the Poison, because children have taken discarded cigarette butts or whole cigarettes in your mouth. A single Dump can be according to experts, for a small child to be fatal.

Nonetheless, the foray of the Federal environment Minister, Svenja Schulze (SPD), the tobacco industry pushes to participate in the future, the costs for the disposal of discarded cigarettes and Butts, in the capital, with little response. This danger not only threatens children. Cigarette butts contain nicotine, arsenic, lead, copper, heavy metals, chromium, and Cadmium – all toxic and carcinogenic substances in high concentration. This can be reached by rain into the soil, in water and in the drinking water and the health to cause substantial damage. Nevertheless, it is made in the capital only a little against this serious Form of pollution. There is more: The awareness of the risk seems to be not only in population but also in some authorities to be a little pronounced.

Too little control by the clerk's office

Although the throwing away of cigarette butts, a misdemeanor that can be punished with fines, at different levels, but there are – as so often in Berlin – hardly any controls. Or hardly more controls, because it was different.

As the answer of the Senate environment management to a request from the FDP's Deputy Florian Kluckert from the September of this year, decreased the number of corresponding checks and initiated administrative fine proceedings dramatically in the comparison of the 2017 to 2018 (up to September): in the district of Lichtenberg, 31 controls, and 23 are in process, with eight controls and six cases, in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district from nine to six. Only in the district of Spandau, the number rose from four to ten controls and procedures. Thus, the district this year is actually the frontrunner.

to order This could the districts do not protect it with the appropriate method, only the health of their inhabitants and the environment. So the district took Neukölln, where up to 60 Euro fine can be levied in the year 2015 5125 Euro. In 2017, there were still 560, this year, until the autumn of 135 Euro. Similar to a dramatic decline in the revenue in Lichtenberg and Pankow are gone.

After all, be carried out in these districts at least controls. In most of the other does nothing, or it is not recorded, so you can only make no information. Only Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg admits honestly, neither penalty proceedings initiated to have, all the offences detected. You have other things to Worry about, it was called from the district office: parked bike paths, for example, or the elimination of Scrap bicycles that block the bike racks.

more Soon staff: New jobs advertised

It wasn't just a matter that no staff was present, said a spokeswoman at the request of the daily mirror: "We have just advertised four Points, six more expected to come." The candidate would need to be at the school of administration first of all made to fit. "An administrative offense to carry out procedures correctly, you need to have some basic knowledge."

Also, many citizens had not even aware that the disposal of cigarette butts is an offence, and it would, of course, be "more opportunities for legal disposal".

the Latter can not understand BSR spokesperson Sabine Thümler. "We have 23,000 in paper baskets in Berlin," she says, "Each of which has, due to the risk of fire, an Extra throw – in that can't be the Argument. There is also a smoker, which would always result in a small ashtray, and never a cigarette butt on the ground throw.“
