It is our aim to prevent littering, by encouraging people to dispose of their rubbish sensibly and to take pride in where they live.


Further information

We work hard to ensure that our local area is clean and tidy by clearing litter from council land. We clear litter and waste in public areas as required by the litter code of practice.

However, it is the responsibility of land owners to have litter and waste removed and lawfully disposed of from their land. Please contact Customer Services to find how our waste management services can help.

Anyone found to litter can be issued with an £80 Fixed Penalty Notice or will be prosecuted.
