Chewing gum litter is present in most town centres. It is difficult to remove. Not only is chewing gum the most prevalent form of staining, it is the most persistent. Chewing gum does not degrade and retains these properties over a long period of time, under all weather conditions. Impacted gum can not be dislodged by routine street cleaning, but requires specialist procedures and equipment such as power washing, manual scraping, steam cleaning and cryogenics.
The base of any chewing gum contains either a natural or synthetic latex (rubber). It is this property which determines the chewiness, flavour retention and shelf life of the gum. It also means that the gum:
As chewing gum does not decompose when dropped on the ground, deposits gradually accumulate until they are removed during cleansing.
The staining left behind poses another problem for local government, the oily deposit left behind after the gum has been removed can often look as unsightly as the gum itself.
With greater public awareness about environmental quality, fewer people are willing to accept low standards of cleanliness.
