The Environmental Protection Act 1990 imposes a duty on local authorities to keep specified land and public highways clear of litter and refuse so far as is practicable.
A Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse is issued under section 89(7) of the 1990 Act.
The Code defines standards of cleanliness and sets how quickly differing types of land should be returned to a set cleanliness standard.
