Litter ranges in size from a single sweet wrapper to a bag full of rubbish.


Litter in a public place is unsightly, unsafe and unpleasant, dangerous to animals and pedestrians, and dropping it is an offence.

Our Environmental Enforcement Officers can issue a fixed penalty notice of £75 to those caught littering. A fine of up to £2,500 can be issued by a court on conviction of a littering offence.

Litter bins are provided across the whole of Stevenage. Each bin is emptied at least once a fortnight and more often where there is a high volume of pedestrian traffic.

You can report an issue with a litter bin online.
