Litter and fly-tipping
Litter and fly-tipping are criminal offences that cause a blight on our local landscape, and impact on the health and wellbeing of our communities.
Litter and fly-tipping represent waste that is disposed of illegally and irresponsibly with both being environmental crimes which constitute a serious offence that can lead to prosecution.
Find information on how to report a litter or fly-tipping problem; the funding that is available to finance clearance of private land and introduce preventative actions to resolve the localised problem long-term; the provision of litter bins and their maintenance; national awareness raising campaigns; and details of how to loan a kit for an organised local clean up event.
Litter is an anti-social behaviour which is a blight on our environment and a financial burden. This is highlighted by the fact that it costs Perth & Kinross Council over £2 million per annum to clear up litter.
Environment Services are responsible for the provision and maintenance of litter bins throughout the area. There are in excess of 1200 bins throughout Perth and Kinross.
Fly-tipping is an environmental crime and an unnecessary activity given the many appropriate avenues for disposal of household and commercial waste in place across Perth & Kinross.
Temporary funding is available to landowners, communities and individuals across Perth and Kinross who wish to carry out mini-projects to clear fly-tipping from private land and implement preventative actions at each site to resolve the localised problem long-term.
