The offence of leaving litter
It is a criminal offence to leave, throw down or drop litter, including chewing gum and cigarette butts. The offence carries a maximum penalty of £2,500. We can also issue fixed penalty notices of £75 to people that litter. The fine must be paid within 14 days, but that’s reduced to £50 if you pay within 7 days.
We actively encourage you to take pride in your local area and clean it up either on your own or in a community group.
