Reporting litter issues

Any reports of people regularly dropping litter or dumping other items (fly-tipping), will be investigated and legal proceedings undertaken whenever possible.

  • Dropping litter is an offence which can result in a Fixed Penalty Notice of £75 or prosecution at a Magistrates' Court
  • Dropping litter from a vehicle can result in a fine of £150 or prosecution

Report litter

Needles or syringes plus other drug related items are a hazard to health. If discovered contact us as a matter of urgency on 01256 844844 to have them safely removed.

Any drug related items found on private premises during working hours should be reported to the relevant organisation directly.

Discarded litter is a blight on our countryside, town centres and parks. It creates hazards for communities and wildlife.

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is a member of the Keep Britain Tidy organisation, supporting local communities to live in a safe and clean environment.
