Council wardens in Amsterdam handed out over 20,000 fines to people dumping rubbish in the street last year, and investigated some 30,000 complaints about waste since June, the Parool reported on Wednesday.
Some 6% of the fines went to companies, the rest to private individuals who were identified by addresses left on cardboard boxes or on envelopes in bin bags.
The city has also brought in 30 extra rubbish lorries to collect the waste.
People caught dumping rubbish face a fine of €95 but this can go up to €1,250 for persistent offenders.
Laurens Ivens, the city official responsible for waste collection, says the summer offensive is starting to have an impact.

Amsterdam city council to buy up social housing to keep it in the public sector

New housing under construction in Amsterdam
Amsterdam city council is considering investing directly in social housing which is sold off by housing corporations, to make sure that is stays in the rent-controlled sector.
City housing chief Laurens Ivens says there is ‘no choice’ other than to buy property to make sure there is no reduction in the amount of social housing in the Dutch capital. Currently, housing corporation property is often bought up by developers and investors who charge higher rents.
Housing falls into the social housing sector if the rent is less than €752 per month. Some 40% of Amsterdam’s housing stock is currently rent controlled.
