Lights, Lights and more Lights

The Sunderland Forum deals with all local issues in the chat rooms above. However, this is the General Off Topic Forum. So, this area is for all non-local-issues, for example, national news or any other interests etc.

Say @Steve30000 is correct and they are discarded lighters then action must be taken because they will have those button batteries in them and that's a pollutant we can do without.
Years ago there were concerns that these button batteries contained mercury and that kids were swallowing so I'd like to think that issue was addressed.
Still, throwing away stuff like this is not on!

Maybe if people respected where they lived, they wouldn't do it.

That's very true but are you talking about a micro location or city-wide?
Basically we should just take our rubbish home and bin it properly.
I am not the world's greatest recycler but I have those who drop rubbish for others to pick up.
