Bright Blue responds to the Government’s decision to increase the maximum fine from £150 to £500 for littering, and £400 to £1,000 for fly-tipping. 

Commenting, Eve Redmond, Research Assistant: 

“Both littering and fly-tipping have not only caused significant adverse impacts on local environments, they have also cost the taxpayer millions of pounds to clean up. The PM’s decision to significantly increase fines for those who engage in these activities is, therefore, a very welcome one.”

Bright Blue recently proposed that the UK Government should increase fines for littering to £500 in our 2020 report, Global Green Giant, and our Bright Blue petition.
