Litter Removal

We regularly inspect the streets and pavements in Fife to make sure they are maintained to an acceptable standard. Our priority is to maintain the cleanliness of an area, rather than how often it's cleaned.

Street and pavement cleaning standards are set by a Code of Practice included in the Environmental Protection Act 1990. This sets out the reasonable and acceptable standards of cleanliness, which we are expected to meet.

All areas are categorised, with each having a timescale by which it should be returned to a litter free standard. They are graded in respect of their cleanliness and audited by the Local Environmental Audit Management System (L.E.A.M.S).

If you feel that the standard of cleanliness in your area is not satisfactorily maintained, please contact us to have the problem investigated. We'll aim to respond within five working days.
