Cameras are to be used at a busy junction to catch those throwing litter out of cars and lorries.
They will appear on the A483 slip road Johnstown turn off in the near future and drivers who are found responsible for littering will be fined and could face prosecution.
The A483 is a high speed road and road closures are required to collect litter safely.
Cllr David A Bithell Lead Member Environment and Transport, said, “Reducing road side litter is part of a national campaign that we’re supporting to prevent people blighting verges.
“Litter is being thrown out of vehicles onto the verges of the junction. We are discussing with the trunk road agency litter along the A483 which is unacceptable and collecting it comes at a cost to local tax payers.”
