1. Report litter thrown from a vehicle

If you have seen someone dropping litter from a vehicle, please let us know.

When reporting littering we suggest you download the What3Words app; this means we can now respond to exact locations in very rural areas or in a town environment to find the issue to be dealt with.

The app helps us to find the exact location of the littering by giving small areas 3 unique words. When giving details of the location in our online form, please use the 3 words generated by the app in the location details box.

All the emergency services in Devon and Cornwall are now also using the app as a back up to their other location finding systems, so you may find the app useful in future too.
