A decision to extend the contract with Waste Investigations Support and Enforcement (WISE) for another 12 months was recommended last week during a meeting of Mid & East Antrim Council's District Services Committee.
Mid & East Antrim Council receives 10% income from fixed penalty notices issued by WISE, however, Causeway Coast & Glens Council does reveal that information due to what they say is 'commercially sensitive'.
The firm up until December had come under fire during meetings of Causeway Coast and Glens Environmental Services Committee meetings.
Councillor John McAuley was vocal about the firm’s tactics of mainly targeting the littering of cigarette butts.
It is understood Causeway Coast and Glens Council will discuss if they will renew their contract with the firm within the next few weeks.
