In addition to providing litter bins we also carry out litter picking. It is important that everyone takes responsibility for improving the environment by using the litter bins provided.
If you do notice any littered areas, then please report this to us. We will then arrange for a team to attend and carry out a litter pick of the area.
Penalties for dropping litter
It is an offence to drop litter on public land. A fixed penalty notice of £75 may be served, payable within 20 days of the notice being issued. This will be reduced to £50 if paid within 10 days of the notice being issued.
Litter picking volunteers
We also support community groups to carry out litter picking on a voluntary basis. We can assist through providing the necessary equipment to do this safely. View more information on volunteering.
