Thurso and Wick targeted with fixed penalties for offenders

HIGHLAND COUNCIL continues to run its ‘zero tolerance’ campaign on litter and Officers will again be making a targeted effort over the next fortnight.
During the two week campaign people caught dropping litter will be issued with Fixed Penalty Notices throughout the Highland area. The Antisocial Behaviour etc. (Scotland) Act 2004 introduced fixed penalty notices for littering and fly-tipping and the penalty is £50.
The campaign will cover; Nairn, Grantown, Aviemore, Alness, Invergordon, Tain, Wick, Thurso, Dingwall, Fort William and Inverness.
The council's Enforcement Team are confident the message has been getting across to those in the Highlands as during the recent National ‘Litter Day of Action’ 4 fixed penalty notices were issued in Inverness during joint patrols between the Police and Highland Council authorised Officers.
