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.

Report a litter problem

Report a litter or litter bin problem 

Alternatively telephone the Customer Service Centre on 01738 476476 with the following details:

  • the location of the litter or litter bin;
  • for litter - what needs to be cleared
  • for litter bins - does it need emptied? Is it defective / damaged or missing?

If you know of an area that could benefit from a litter bin, you can request this using the same form.

Organising a clean-up event

Unfortunately, due to the on-going situation with Covid-19, litter picking equipment will not be available to borrow until further notice.  However, we are preparing a new procedure for community litter pickers - please visit the Community litter pickers webpage for further information.
