Litter in a public place is unsightly, dangerous to animals, and an offence. The average fine for littering in Hastings around £95, but can be up to £2,500.
Litter ranges in size from a single sweet wrapper, to a bag full of rubbish. 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.
