Who should clear away litter?
Your local authority has a legal duty (so far as practicable) to clear litter and refuse from public places for which is it responsible such as streets, parks, playgrounds and pedestrianised areas.
If a piece of private land is littered and is affecting the local environmental quality, we will look to take enforcement actions to ensure the land is cleared to satisfactory standard. Of course, Erewash residents should all help by not dropping litter in the first place.
