Do you want to help us Keep Carlisle Clean?
We need your help to tackle enviro-crimes such as dog fouling, littering and fly-tipping.
We enforce all three problem areas and we want you to get in touch if you have any information that could result in perpetrators being caught.
No community should have to put up with streets and green spaces polluted with dog fouling. Not only is it a health hazard, it is also an unsightly mess. There is also no excuse to drop litter or fly-tip. Think twice before you hand over your rubbish to illegal operators - if it’s fly-tipped you could face a hefty fine.
- It is an offence not to clean up after your dog has fouled. If caught, prosecution could result in a fine of up to £1,000. Bag it and bin! - any bin will do, dispose of your bagged waste responsibly.
- Fly-tipping is illegal and offenders can receive a fixed penalty fine of up £400. Before you pay for your waste to be taken away, check it is being disposed of the right way. If they dump the waste, you could face an unlimited fine and a prosecution through the courts. You can recycle your waste using household waste recycling centres or arrange a bulky waste collection by clicking on this link.
- No ifs, no butts - if you drop litter - even a cigarette butt, you could face a fine of up to £2,500.
