Our waste enforcement officers issue Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) of £80 (reduced to £50 if paid within 10 days) to anyone over the age of 18 for dropping litter on a public land/ highway but not picking it up.
To report an offender please contact the Police on 101 and ask to speak to your local neighbourhood team.
To report litter on a public highway please use the Fix My Street website.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have suspended our litter picking services until further notice. This is to enable our team to focus on essential services whilst building resilience in our workforce due to an increase in staff shortages due to illness.
We can support your efforts to clean up your area by offering high-vis jackets, litter pickers, collection bags and (most important) appointments for pre-arranged collections for all the litter you collect. This way bags of rubbish are not left on the streets.
This is a FREE service but we have two simple rules
Bags of collected litter left on the roadside or next to bins without arranging with us first will be treated as fly-tipping.
