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 here information on how to report a litter or fly-tipping problem; 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.

Litter bins

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.
