The invoice above shows that Kingdom Services Group Limited charged Wirral Council £21,552 for litter fixed penalty notices issued in February 2018.

A response to a FOI request by Wirral Council stated that in February 2018 480 litter fixed penalty notices were issued by Kingdom. Each fixed penalty notice is for £80. £80 multiplied by the 480 litter tickets issued is £38,400.

£21,552 divided by £38,400 is 56.125%, so it would appear Kingdom keep £44.90 from each £80 fixed penalty notice.

In addition to this Kingdom also invoiced Wirral Council for issuing fixed penalty notices for alleyway dumping (see a two page invoice below) at an hourly rate in February 2018 that came to £240 for some days and £120 for others. Wirral Council were charged a further £5,472 for this in February 2018. A two page invoice for this is below.

Since February 2018, Wirral Council have awarded a further contract for litter enforcement to Kingdom, so it is unknown what is the current amount that Kingdom receives for each fixed penalty notice issued.
