2014 Campaign
Scheduled for launch – 22 September 2014
Target audience: gum droppers (CGAG litter segmentation)
• To reduce chewing gum litter
• To increase awareness among gum chewers that gum is
litter and should not be dropped on the floor
• To increase responsible disposal of used chewing gum
• To increase awareness among gum chewers that they
could be fined for dropping chewing gum
• To create a sense of local pride
2014 Campaign
Key messages:
• Put your used gum in a bin – a tangible way you can do your
bit to show you care about where you live
• It’s your responsibility to do the right thing
• People who irresponsibly dispose of their gum can be fined up
to £80 on-the-spot
2014 Campaign
• Similar campaign in Republic of Ireland
• Focus groups
• Advertising needs to articulate:
– Dropping gum is littering
– Fine in place for littering
– Encouragement to the public to bin
their gum
• Four key messages from focus groups
– Don’t think the worst of me
– Engage me
– Make it humorous
– Show me the bin
The Posters

2014: PR aims
• Leverage 2014’s advertising campaign and target regional media

• Work closely with participating LAs and BIDs to ensure a
coordinated approach
• Secure high quality media coverage that delivers key messages
How will we evaluate the campaigns?

areas in each partner area.
• Media coverage
• Partnerships formed
• Website and social media activity
• Attitudinal research/recall monitoring
• Enforcement activity
• Allows us to measure a percentage

– Flat & ‘3D’ gum

the effectiveness of the campaign
Choosing your survey sites
Choose at least 10 survey sites
Suggested areas:
• Mix of sites with & without advertising
• Areas outside fast food outlets
• Outside nightclubs or bars
• Car parks
• The high street or a parade of shops
• Transport hubs, e.g. rail/bus station
• Outside schools/colleges/universities
• Public buildings or office blocks
• Outside cinemas/bingo halls
How big should the survey areas be?
• Each area should be 10m2 in size
• Once the survey areas have been
chosen, make a simple diagram
– Could mark the area, diagram is better
– Taking photographs may be helpful
– Note key features such as bins or doorways
• Draw another diagram showing each of
the survey sites in relation to the whole
campaign area
Example survey area diagram
The pre-campaign survey
• It is vital that the timetable is followed to ensure a
baseline survey is completed
– Baseline is crucial to all monitoring
• Cleanse each area 28 days before the survey
• Do not cleanse again during the control period,
i.e. until after the survey
• After 28 days do a gum count in each survey area
• This must be done BEFORE the campaign starts
The survey during the campaign
• Cleanse your survey areas at the start of the campaign
(after the pre-campaign survey)
• Do not cleanse the areas again for 28 days while the
campaign is running
• After 28 days, count the amount of gum deposited in
each area
• This provides an indication as to the effect of the
– Must be compared to an effective baseline survey
The post-campaign survey
• At the end of the campaign (after the campaign
survey), cleanse each survey area
• Leave for a further 28 days with no cleansing
• After 28 days, count the amount of gum deposited in
each area
• By drawing comparison with the previous surveys,
the results will show how successful the campaign
has been

Previous mistakes
• The most common monitoring mistake in the 2013
campaign related to the baseline cleanse and count
– Several partners did not conduct a baseline cleanse
– This meant there was no way of knowing how long the
gum had been there so the count was inaccurate
• Please allow enough time to conduct a cleanse on
all sites more than 28 days before the campaign
– Pre-campaign survey must also take place before 22
Further guidance
• It is vital that this guidance is observed
• For consistency, monitoring should be
conducted at the same time and on the same
day of the week for each survey area
• If possible, the same person should conduct the
• DO NOT cleanse the survey areas except where
outlined in the guidance
