Report a litter or dog fouling problem
Have you ever thrown a sweet wrapper on the street thinking it won't matter because the Council will pick it up? Or thrown your chip remains in a hedge because the birds will eat them? The reality is that litter is an eyesore and costs millions of pounds to clear up. It is also the main reason the rat population is rising so fast.
We have decided to get tough on litter louts. To help deal with this kind of environmental crime, our enforcement team is now issuing a £80.00 fine - known as a fixed penalty notice (FPN) - for people who drop litter, including cigarette ends and chewing gum. If you fail to pay, you could face prosecution and a fine of up to £2,500. So if you are out and about and you have litter - bin it.
