Litter and graffiti
Report litter or someone for dropping litter. If you have footage (e.g. from a dashcam) of somebody dropping litter from a vehicle then this can be submitted as evidence.
By law, you cannot drop litter in any open public place, this includes cigarette butts and chewing gum.
We can fine anyone that drops litter £150.
If you fail to pay the fine within 14 days legal proceedings will be started. A Magistrate's Court may impose a fine of up to £2,500.
We can support local community litter-picks and clean-ups by providing pickers, hi vis vests, gloves, and bin bags. Unfortunately, we are not currently able to lend out equipment.
We will arrange for graffiti on public property to be removed. The timescale for its removal will depend upon the content.
We will take action on flytipping and the dumping of waste on public roads and land we own. We will prosecute anyone we can identify as having dumped waste.

We will remove illegally posted adverts and posters on property in the area.
