Litter and Street Sweeping
The Waste Management section has responsibility for the cleanliness of streets and open public spaces in Angus. Manual and mechanical street sweeping is carried out, and reports of litter or flytipping are responded to.
Where an officer who is authorised by the council observes someone dropping litter, a fixed penalty notice for £50 can be issued.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often will my street be cleaned?
Cleaning frequency is determined by use; a busy High Street will receive more regular cleaning than a quiet cul-de-sac, for example.
How do I report litter in a street or park?
What can communities do to help combat litter?
Community groups, or any interested party, can carry out a litter-pick of an area they would like to help become litter-free, for example a nature trail or beach.
What help can the council provide for a community litter-pick?
Angus Council can loan litter-pickers, with different sizes available to suit children and adults. Other equipment may also be available, such as hoops to hold bags open, high visibility vests and gloves.
We can also make arrangements to uplift the waste collected, where appropriate.
How can communities participate in Clean up Scotland?
Clean up Scotland replaces Keep Scotland Beautiful's National Spring Clean campaign, and will run as an all year round campaign to reduce as much litter as possible. See the Clean up Scotland campaign video or pledge your support. For more information please visit the Clean up Scotland website.
Who do I contact for further information?
Further information relating to litter can be found at the Clean up Scotland website.
