Clean Camden Toolkits
Increasing fines for illegally dumping rubbish
We wanted to take stronger action against those who commit environmental crimes affecting Camden's street scene.
The fine for littering - including the dropping of cigarette butts - has now been raised to £100.
From Monday 1 April 2019 the cost of fines for the illegal dumping of rubbish and business waste increased.
- fly-tipping maximum penalty increased to £400 (discounted to £200 if paid early)
- business waste - 'failure to comply with a waste receptacle notice' penalty increased to £110 (discounted to £80 if paid early)
