Council to target dog fouling and littering with a series of Enforcement & Education Days

16 Jun 2022

In December 2021 following a borough-wide survey, Sutton residents overwhelmingly told us that the council should adopt a zero tolerance approach when dealing with those that commit environmental crimes such as fly tipping, littering and dog fouling. Since then, together with our enforcement partners Kingdom, we’ve been targeting fly-tipping around the borough and have issued over 300 fines. 

From Monday 20 June we’ll be turning our attention to littering and dog fouling and launching a series of targeted Enforcement and Education days around the borough in areas where our residents have told they are concerned about littering, dog fouling and fly tipping. We hope by working with our partners and the local police and Safer Neighbourhoods Teams, we can encourage residents to do the right thing. The teams will even reward residents that are already doing the right thing with a chance to win some vouchers in the ‘Bin It To Win It’ competition!

The first Education and Enforcement Day is on Monday 20 June 2022 and will begin in the Beddington and Wallington areas. Further days are planned in the coming weeks and months ahead. 

We hope that these coordinated efforts will see positive outcomes in the local area through a combination of education and enforcement and encourage civic pride values that ultimately result in cleaner streets for all those that live, work or study in the borough.
