Litter enforcement

Under section 87 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, it is an offence to drop or leave litter in any public place even if thrown from a vehicle. City Wardens assist the local community in maintaining a clean litter free environment and are authorised to issue Fixed Penalty Notices should the need arise.

The fixed penalty cost of £80 is set out by the Scottish Executive and will be issued if anyone is found littering in any way in a public place.

Payment of fines can be made at Marischal College.

To contact the City Wardens regarding litter enforcement please phone 03000 200 292.
