Rubbish or litter problems

We will clean up litter on land that we are responsible for, such as roads, pavements and public parks. You may see litter gathering in an area and wish to report it as an issue.

People found littering will be issued with a fixed penalty notice of £120 which if paid within 14 days reduces to £65. Failure to pay the penalty within the time frame will result in prosecution and a maximum fine of £2,500.

Damaged or overflowing public bins

To report a damaged or overflowing bin visit Street litter bin.
