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.
Further information can be found on the Highways Rangers web page.

Volunteer Litter Picking
Would you like to help keep Brentwood tidy?
We supply free litter picking kits to Brentwood residents who would like to volunteer in their community. The kits include a litter picker, refuse sacks, hi-visibility jacket and gloves and are available for collection from outside the Town Hall every Wednesday, please just help yourself.
We recommend that any litter you collect is returned to your property and we will collect this as part of the usual weekly refuse collection.
If you would like to arrange a larger litter pick or require multiple kits, please contact us to make these arrangements.
