Reporting Littering and Dog Fouling Offences

Litter has a wide definition and is generally assumed to be discarded material associated with smoking, eating and drinking, or other social activities. It also includes waste that has been scattered about from business or domestic premises. Litter could include such items as cigarette ends, cigarette packets and wrappings, discarded fast food takeaways and their wrappings, chewing gum, confectionary wrappers, crisp packets, drinks bottles and cans, newspapers and magazines and any other item (large or small).

The Litter (Northern Ireland) Order 1994 states that if a person throws down, drops or otherwise deposits anything whatsoever which defaces that place by litter, they are guilty of an offence. Enforcement of littering offences comes under the remit of Council for offences committed in our area.   If you see a litter offence being committed please report it by contacting us.

You will be asked to provide the date, time and location of the offence, what was thrown down and the name and address of the offender. Where a vehicle is involved please provide the make, colour and registration mark of the vehicle, together with a description of the offender, i.e driver, front seat passenger, male, female etc.

You will also be asked to provide your own name, address and telephone number for verification purposes.

Alternatively you can report the offence by telephone on 028 3831 2400 and give the same information as above to our customer services officer. You can use this service to report litter, dog fouling and fly-tipping (illegal dumping) offences.

Fixed Penalty Notices

A person detected throwing down litter or permitting their dog to foul will receive a £80 Fixed Penalty Fine on the spot or by post.

Upon receiving a Fixed Penalty Notice the person has fourteen days to pay. The fine can be paid by post, by sending a cheque or Postal Order, made payable to Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, and sent to Craigavon Civic and Conference Centre, Lakeview Road, Craigavon, BT64 1AL. Payment can also be made in person at the address on the Notice, by cheque, postal order, cash or credit / debit card. Credit / Debit card payments can also be accepted by telephoning 028 3831 2400.

Failure to pay a Fixed Penalty fine will result in a court summons being issued. Conviction in court for this offence carries a criminal record and a penalty up to a maximum of £2,500.


If you want to appeal the Fixed Penalty fine you need to:

  • Write to us within two weeks of the fine being issued.
  • Quote the fixed penalty reference number
  • State the reason(s) for your appeal
  • Send it to us at the address below

We will review your case if you believe a mistake has been made.

A decision will be made and if successful you will not be required to pay the fine.

However, if you are unsuccessful you must pay the fine immediately.
