Litter clearance

The Council must clear litter and refuse from public places. This includes:

  • streets
  • parks
  • playgrounds
  • pedestrian areas

If a piece of private land is littered the owner is responsible for clearing the litter. Often the problem is determining who owns the land.

Schools must clear litter and refuse from their own grounds but schools have no responsibility for clearing the litter outside the school.
