The Don't Mess with Croydon campaign seeks to crack down on fly-tipping and other environmental crimes in the borough. It sends a firm message to anyone who blights our borough with litter.
Issues such as fly-tipping have a negative effect on people's quality of life. Those who dump rubbish in our streets affect everyone in the community; it is not enough to simply remove the fly-tips once reported but to ensure that we are taking strong action.
To tackle some of these issues, we will put in place special fly-tip reaction teams to patrol the borough with council enforcement officers, investigating fly-tips to catch, fine and prosecute offenders. We will work closely with residents and local business to ensure they too are playing their part in supporting our campaign.
Take pride: it's your duty to look after the environment and dispose of your waste responsibly; there are a range of services available to help you to keep communities clean and tidy. With your support we can make Croydon one of the cleanest greenest boroughs in London.
Fly-tipping is illegal, report it!
We need you to take action to reduce litter in the area where you live, work or visit. Preventing littering and fly-tipping is everyone's responsibility and together we can make a difference to our communities. If you see someone fly-tipping, littering or leaving other types of mess, don't just ignore it, report it!
We rely on you to tell us about fly-tippers, littering and other enviro-crimes. There are different ways to report issues:
- download the Love Clean Streets app and select Croydon as your home local authority
- report street cleansing issues online
We will ensure that the fly-tip is cleared as quickly as possible and as part of our Don’t Mess with Croydon; take pride service we'll let you when it's done.
