Litter Enforcement

Pick up litter sign Under section 87 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, it is an offence to drop or leave litter in any public place even if thrown from a vehicle. City Wardens assist the local community in maintaining a clean litter free environment and are authorised to issue Fixed Penalty Notices should the need arise.

The Fixed Penalty cost of 80 is set out by the Scottish Executive and will be issued if anyone is found littering in any format in a public place.

Payment of Fines can be made at the Marischal College Customer Service Centre.
