What is #LitterlessCornwall?

#LitterlessCornwall is a social movement that helps to protect Cornwall from:

  • litter
  • dog fouling
  • fly tipping
  • other environmental crimes

The Council launched the #Litterless Cornwall campaign movement and so far 1,400 people have added their name to the campaign.

The Council has supported the brilliant Two-Minute Beach Clean community initiative with a donation of £9,000. This has provided tools and site boards. The initiative has resulted in about 1,000 litter pick events and the removal of about a tonne of waste each year so far.

The authority helps fund and support Clean Cornwall. This parntership has:

  • facilitated the collection of 707 bags of litter since 1 January 2019
  • distributed £86,4040 of High Street funding grants to 69 community projects in the last year
  • marshalled 1,064 volunteer litter pickers sweeping the streets, beaches, parks and coast paths of Cornwall

The Council has also set up a Community Enforcement partnership Programme. Through this we have trained our civil parking enforcement officers to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for:

  • dog fouling
  • littering
  • dogs on beaches

Fixed penalty notices issued have jumped from 17 in 2018/19 to 84 in 2019/20.

The partnership has carried out 1,930 high-visibility dog fouling patrols since 2016.

You can report a full bin online and find out about littering fines.

If you see someone littering contact Public Protection.
