    Q115: Can the police do anything about people dropping litter?

    It is an offence to drop litter but it must be witnessed by a police officer/community support officer or council warden and it is likely that if any course of action is pursued it would be a penalty notice for disorder, which means a fine. This amount can vary. Please see the link in Related Information for the amounts.
