Litter bins and dog waste bins are provided throughout the district by Mid Devon District Council in partnership with town and parish councils and commercial businesses. The bins are emptied at varying frequencies.
It is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 Section 87
for any person to throw down, drop or otherwise deposit litter. Under Section 88 of the Act, where on any occasion an authorised officer of the council finds a person who he/she has reason to believe has committed an offence under the Act, he/she may give that person a notice offering them the opportunity of discharging any liability to conviction for this offence by payment of a fixed penalty.
If you've receive a fixed penalty notice for littering, you can pay for it online using our Pay a litter fine facility. Alternatively, you can contact us, or visit us in person at our office in Tiverton, see Contact details and opening hours.
