Renfrewshire Council

Join Renfrewshire's Big Spring Clean on 20-22 April. Host your own clean up or join a prearranged one, we need your help! 

Focus on: Littering & Fly tipping

Litter pickers

One of the biggest causes of our streets being unclean is littering and fly tipping.

The Council is forced to collect tonnes of litter each year from our streets, which takes workers away from completing other tasks to improve our environment. 

If we 'Team Up to Clean Up' then we can ensure our streets are cleaner, brighter and a more attractive place for people to live, work or visit in.

Littering

The Council is responsible for keeping roads, pavements, parks and other open space areas litter free.

We've employed an additional six litter pickers who will work on a four-on, four-off shift basis who are each assigned to a specific area of Renfrewshire.

They tackle any litter issues in the area and also look to undertake additional tidying and cleaning of their area where possible.

Renfrew, Paisley and Johnstone town centres are litter picked on a daily basis in addition to this further investment.

We also have our Wardens and Rapid Response Team patrolling Renfrewshire every day to clear our streets and try to ensure they are as litter free as possible.

But we need you to help us.

If everyone uses the public bins provided or keeps litter with them until they reach a bin, then Renfrewshire will be a cleaner place to live.

Tonnes of litter is dropped across Renfrewshire each year and if we can 'Team Up to Clean Up' to stop this happening then our communities will see the benefit.

If you think you can help and you've got the time to volunteer, visit our Community Clean Up page and let's work together to make Renfrewshire a better place.

Fly tipping

There's always an alternative to fly tipping your waste- don't do it!

Fly tipping can cause damage to the environment leaving as well as leaving an unsightly mess for the community.

If caught you could face a Fixed Penalty Notice of £200 or if taken to court a fine of up to £40,000 or imprisonment.

If you see someone fly tipping or discover dumped wasted, report it to us via the article related to this page, or call 0300 300 0300.

You can also report it to the National Stopline on 08452 30 40 90.

Or report a 'dumper' on the Dumb Dumpers website.

If you can't remove the waste yourself, you can arrange a special uplift by the Council to collect domestic waste, garden waste, and white goods.

To request this call: 0300 300 0300 or sign up for our MyAccount service to do this online.

Costs and guidelines for special uplifts can be found via the article related to this page.
