Councillors in Burnley are set to launch a community clean-up campaign across the borough.

Burnley Council’s executive is recommended to approve the programme of “targeted” activities when it meets on 27th March.

The aim is to tackle anti-social behavior and raise awareness about the impact of flytipping and other environmental crime.

The campaign will complement separate work being carried out by the council’s new private partner Kingdom Environmental Services which is introducing enforcement patrols to tackle littering and dog fouling from 10th April.

“We know the top priority for residents is making sure their neighbourhoods are clean and tidy,” said Joanne Swift, the council’s head of Streetscene. “The vast majority of people don’t drop litter or dump rubbish, and they do clean up after their dogs. They want to see tough action against those that don’t follow the rules and whose selfish actions spoil our borough for everyone else.

“This clean-up campaign is about promoting more community involvement and ideas to develop local initiatives on the ground. It will see the council working more closely with the community and ward councilors to carry out targeted clean-up work.”

That work would include:

·        Community clean ups

·        Encouraging volunteering

·        Increased recycling

·        Closer working with schools and community groups

·        Providing clean-up equipment

·        “Educational” activities

The campaign will be delivered from within existing council resources and a review of the work will be carried out early next year.
