University bans litter pickers after snowflake students because they’re too stressful

SNOWFLAKE students got a litter squad kicked out of their university — because they were stressing them out.

Undergraduates whined to their union after being fined for dropping rubbish round the campus.

The University of Liverpool has now banned regular litter-busting patrols from private company Kingdom.

Student union boss Jonathon Foster was “really pleased”.

He said: “Many students have been fined over the past year by Kingdom officers for petty ­littering, such as carelessly ­disposing of cigarette butts.”

It “added undue financial stress” on to the “already high level of stress of meeting deadlines and revising for exams”.

Litter officers have already been banned from the city’s John Moores University.

The move has been blasted by locals, including Chris Wall who said: “Just stop throwing your crud on the floor, scruffs. Nothing to worry about then.”

Another blasted: “They need to face realities of life earlier in their education.”

The Sun told last week how the University of Manchester encouraged “jazz hands” instead of clapping to avoid sparking anxiety among students.

Liverpool City Council confirmed the litter officers had been banned from campus.

But it warned: “They will continue to patrol the outskirts of the university grounds and will issue fixed penalty notices to those who litter on property directly adjoining public land.”
