We want to keep Newham clean. To do this we need everyone to be responsible about litter. Litter is anything that is dropped, thrown or left, which spoils a public place.
Don't be a litter bug
Newham has more than 1,800 public litter bins and we provide weekly rubbish collections. But some people still dirty the borough by dropping rubbish and dumping bags of rubbish on the streets.
Our law enforcement officers patrol the borough and issue fines to those caught dumping litter and rubbish.
If you drop litter we can fine you £80 on the spot.
So if you don’t spot a litter bin while you are out please keep hold of your rubbish.
Report a street litter bin problem
If a litter bin is overflowing, or if you want to report any other problems or you have questions about litter bins, let us know.
