Litter ranges in size from a single sweet wrapper to a bag full of rubbish. The Environmental Protection Act of 1990 states that if a person drops, throws, deposits, or leaves anything that causes defacement in a public place, they are committing a littering offence. So always try to use a litter bin or take it home.
There are 450 litter bins in the district of South Derbyshire District council. Each bin is emptied once a week and can take bagged dog waste and litter. To report a problem with a litter bin or to request a litter bin at a new location, please use the Clean Team Report Form
