Camden gets cleaner this Summer

Camden Council’s summer Clean Camden campaign has seen officers carrying out a range of operations to tackle the problems caused by fast food, cigarette litter and business waste across the borough.

The Clean Camden campaign was launched in November 2013 and has proved successful in raising the profile of littering, fly tipping and dog fouling issues and reducing the impact of these across Camden.

“Recent feedback from Camden Waste Challenge engagement work highlighted the key concerns of residents. These including litter in high street areas, particularly from fast food premises and around schools, including to and from local shops, as well as a wish to see officers out and about delivering visible enforcement on the street.

 “Dealing with littering is a priority for Camden and is taken seriously. I recently joined our team from Clean Camden campaign in one of their education and enforcement sessions which is proving to be successful in changing behaviour.”
Cllr Meric Apak, Cabinet Member for Sustainability and Environment

From 13 to 31 July officers carried out a range of operations to tackle these areas. The campaign has proven to be a significant success with 17 FPNs (Fixed Penalty Notices) for littering, 34 FPNs to businesses for not disposing of their waste correctly and 80 legal notices.For more information visit: www.camden.gov.uk/cleancamden
