Clean Camden campaign
We’re taking a tough approach with those people who continue to litter, dump their waste or do not clear up after their dog.
We know that you find littering, dog fouling and fly-tipping disgusting and anti-social. Our Clean Camden campaign is changing this bad behaviour through education and enforcement. We’ve issued £80 fines to over 400 people we’ve caught dropping litter and dumping waste in Camden between November 2013 and January 2014. We’ve also been holding events for dog walkers to stress the importance of clearing up after their pet, and visiting schools to speak to students where we have had reports of littering.
Our education and enforcement team are patrolling at hotspot areas. You can read about the action they have recently taken against offenders who:
We are also getting tough on businesses who don’t pay to dispose of their
business waste properly. Remember, anyone found fly-tipping could be prosecuted and fined up to £50,000 in a magistrate’s court.
To tackle these issues we need as much information as possible, and that’s where you can help. Let us know if you spot a place or person that is undermining our attempts to rid the borough of dog fouling, littering or fly-tipping by using our online reporting form or calling 020 7974 4444.
We will also be calling on residents to take part in and organise clean up events. Further information will be available on this page in early 2014. You can read about what we have been doing to tackle envirocrime in your area in the Camden magazine
