When a wave source (anything that emits any type of waves) moves towards the observer, the wavelengths are compressed. Consequently, this causes the waves to have a shorter wavelength, and therefore a higher frequency. As a result of this, (if it is sound waves) the pitch of the sound is higher since the frequency is higher.

When a wave source moves away from the observer, the wavelengths are stretched. Consequently, this causes the waves to have a longer wavelength, and therefore a lower frequency. As a result of this, (if it is sound waves) the pitch of the sound is lower due to the frequency being lower.

Hope this helps

Stuff Coming towards you seems to have a higher frequency (and therefore shorter wavelength). Stuff moving away from you seems to have longer wavelengths and lower frequencies.

Simple as.
