Removing your dog's mess and not leaving it for others
Not 'fly posting'

Litter and dog bins
Litter in a public place is unsightly, can be a danger to animals and above all makes an area unattractive to visitors. Littering is also an offence. The average fine for littering is around £95, but can be up to £2,500. Dog mess is also unsightly and a health hazard.

Litter ranges in size from a single sweet wrapper to a bag full of rubbish. The Environmental Protection Act of 1990 states that if a person drops, throws, deposits, or leaves anything that causes defacement in a public place, they are commiting a littering offence. That's why you should always either use a litter bin or take your rubbish home.

Dead animals
Our street cleansing services include the removal and disposal of dead animals from the highway.

Chewing gum removal
TOR2 can undertake programmes of works to remove chewing gum from most areas and types of surfaces.
