Tell us about a litter hotspot

The council spends over £3.7m per year cleaning up after a minority of people who have no respect for the environment. You can help to keep your environment clean – don’t drop litter!

How you can help

  • keep hold of your waste until you find a litter bin - or take it home with you
  • clean up immediately after your pet, if it fouls our streets or parks and either take the waste home or deposit it in a litter bin
