£150 Fixed Penalty Notice for PPE Litter

St Dennis


Cornwall Council is urging residents to make sure used items of personal protective equipment (PPE) go in the bin – or they could face a £150 fixed penalty notice.

In recent months the Council has received lots of reports about PPE being discarded on streets, beaches, green spaces and walkways.

Residents are being urged to put used face coverings and disposable gloves in litter bins or take the items home.

Littering is an offence and those found dropping any item of litter can receive a £150 fixed penalty notice.

If you see someone dropping litter, please email Cornwall Council at publicprotection@cornwall.gov.uk.
