Litter Bins

We provide litter throughout the District to allow you to dispose of your litter. Litter bins in busy areas may be emptied twice daily and dog waste bins are normally emptied once a week.

Litter Bins

You can help us keep Mendip tidy by using the litter bins whenever possible. Litter in a public place is unsightly and can be dangerous to animals; it is also an offence (even if it's only a single sweet wrapper). The average fine for littering is around £75 but can be up to £2,500. So always try to use a litter bin - or take it home.

For more information on litter and the law, visit Keep Britain Tidy below.
