Raising awareness against grime crime

   Councils  

Barking and Dagenham Council

Barking & Dagenham Council has recently introduced an innovative way to fight ‘grime crime’ and reassure residents that fly-tipping is being tackled. Fluorescent yellow stickers that say ‘Council aware’ are now being placed on fly-tipped rubbish by the council’s enforcement officers to appeal for witnesses and reassure residents that the rubbish will be picked up by a refuse team. The stickers also help to reduce the number of duplicate reports of fly-tipping to the council’s ‘Report It’ app.
