Although we regularly inspect our street litter bins to check that they in good working order, they can easily become damaged.
You can report a full or damaged litter bin online for our attention.
Litter in a public place is unsightly, dangerous to animals, and an offence. The average fine for littering is around £100, but can be up to £2,500.
The Environmental Protection Act of 1990 states that if a person drops, throws, deposits, or leaves anything that causes defacement in a public place, they are committing a littering offence. So always try to use a litter bin or take it home.
