FOI Request - Graffiti and Chewing Gum Cleaning

Request 101001201910

I would like to request information on how much money your council has spent in total, since the beginning of 2011, on clearing up graffiti.

I also want to know how much money your council has spent in total, since the beginning of 2011, on removing discarded chewing gum streets.

I would also request that this information on how much has been spent is broken down into the time periods of 2011/12;2012/13;2013/14;2014/15.

I would also ask if it's council workers that carry out the work, or if it is criminal offenders who have been sentenced with community payback orders? I also want to ask how many council employees were tasked with both clearing up graffiti and gum during 2011/12;2012/13;2013/14;2014/15.

And I also want to know how many people on community payback orders carried out the work clearing up graffiti and gum during 2011/12;2012/13;2013/14;2014/15.
