What a fixed penalty notice can be issued for
Dropping litter is illegal. People who drop litter can be fined or face prosecution in court.
Authorised officers have the power to issue a fixed penalty charge, as an alternative to prosecution. If the offender is prosecuted and convicted in court, the fine could rise to £2,500.
- £75 if paid within 0-10 days
- £100 if paid on day 11-14 after the penalty was issued
