We want to keep New Plymouth beautiful and litter free.
We are able to issue fines of up to $400 to people who leave rubbish or potentially hazardous waste in public places or on private land without the occupier’s permission.
If you find rubbish or hazardous waste, or see someone dumping rubbish please contact us on 06 759 6060 or fill in our contact us form and we will investigate it.
Litter fines should be paid within 28 days from the date the ticket was issued. See the paying us section for the various methods to pay.
A reminder notice will be sent if payment is not made within 28 days. If payment is not made within 28 days after the reminder notice is sent, the infringement is sent to the court and court costs will be added to your fine. You will then be required to pay your fine through the court.
If you believe your infringement notice is unjustified you can complete the litter infringement explanation form and send it in to us.
