Littering enforcement

Anyone that drops litter in a public place is committing a crime and they can be issued a fixed penalty notice under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act.

The fixed penalty notice is set at £80 for an offence of littering, and if not paid a magistrates' court can impose a fine of up to £2,500.
