You can help

  • Ensure you take your litter home or use the street litter and recycling bins provided.
  • Never put your household waste on the street before collection; ensure it's on your own property until collection day.
  • Clear up after your dog by using the dedicated dog waste bins throughout the borough.

Litter and the Law

Litter is illegal. People caught littering can receive an on-the-spot fine called a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) of £80. If a person is taken to court the fine could be up to £2,500.

Full details concerning payment and discount rates that may apply are given on the FPN, but for your information online payment is not yet available, so payment can be made by telephone using credit/debit card, cash using the payment kiosk in main reception at the Civic Centre or by sending in a postal order.
