Under section 87 Environmental Protection Act 1990, it is an offence to throw down, drop or otherwise deposit and leave litter. 

Littering offences can result in a £100 fixed penalty, reduced to £80 if paid within the early-payment period, or prosecution and a maximum fine of £2,500.  

Anyone issued a fixed penalty notice for littering in Hull is urged to pay it promptly by calling the Council’s enforcement contractor, LA Support Limited, on 0800 781 6229 or by visiting  

Councillor Julia Conner, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “As an authority, we urge everyone in Hull to dispose of their litter responsibly by taking it home with them or putting it in the bins provided. 

“We also strongly encourage residents to pay fixed penalties as promptly as possible, to avoid a criminal record.”
