We will fine people who drop litter and owners who fail to clear up after their dogs.

Environmental Enforcement Officers are out in Aldershot and Farnborough, issuing fixed penalty notices of £50 for dog fouling and £75 for littering if they believe an offence has been committed. Littering includes chewing gum, cigarette butts and packaging.

If one of these officers sees you dropping litter or failing to clear up after your dog, they will approach you, fine you and explain the offence. During this conversation, video recording equipment will be used.

Pay a fixed penalty notice

You can also pay by phone (during office hours) by contacting our customer services team using the details below.

Payment of the fine discharges your liability for the offence and we won't take any further action.

If you don't pay after we send you a final reminder letter, we will start prosecution proceedings in the magistrates court for the offence, which carries a criminal conviction and a penalty up to £2,500.

We will also look to recover our costs associated with the prosecution.

Challenge your fixed penalty notice

We work with East Hampshire District Council on enforcement.

If you would like to challenge the fixed penalty notice, please email environmental.enforcement@easthants.gov.uk. You can also write to the council at:

Our responsibilities

The enforcement action is covered by the Environmental Protection Act and there is no requirement for us to put up warning signs or notices about it being an offence to drop litter.
