Report Littering Offence

Littering is anti-social and creates an unpleasant environment for everyone.

According to Keep Britain Tidy, around two million pieces of litter are dropped in the UK every day. It costs tax payers over a billion pounds a year for street cleaning.

Under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 we can issue a fixed penalty of £150 for littering and, if convicted in court, they could face a fine of up to £2500.
