LitterReport litter and street cleaning
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.
We have also added an option to our online form to report PPE litter. Dropping face coverings and gloves is not only harmful to the environment but can also contribute to the spread of COVID-19.
You can report a litter issue to us using our online form via the button at the top of the page.
