The council has a statutory duty to clear litter from land it's responsible for. If the land is private, the council may use legislation to force the landowner to clear away any rubbish and litter.

You can use our online form to:

  • report a damaged or full litter bin
  • report a damaged or full dog litter bin
  • report a spillage from a refuse collection.

Report litter or a problem with litter bins

We will aim to get any syringes collected and disposed of by the end of the working day if reported by 4pm.

Fines for littering

Any person who is witnessed intentionally dropping, throwing or leaving rubbish, can be issued a fine for £150, or, if prosecuted, face a fine up to £2,500.
