Report litter

Littering is a crime. We can issue a £150 fixed penalty notice to anybody caught spoiling the streets by not using a litter bin.

Request a litter pick

We can serve notices to the occupiers of business premises or private land requiring them to clear it. We can also take steps to prevent the land being defaced by litter again.

It is a criminal offence to ignore such a notice. The maximum penalty on conviction is £2,500 for individuals, or £20,000 for businesses.

Smoking-related litter

We work with Keep Britain Tidy to encourage smokers to dispose of their cigarette ends responsibly.

Our message is: no butts – stub it, bin it.

Businesses in Cambridge can pledge to support our voluntary litter code to help keep the city clean.
