City council approves £2.5m battle against dumping

Good news today that the Stoke-on-Trent City Council cabinet has given the green light to £2.5m of new proposals to clean up the city. There will be a 'zero tolerance' approach to fly-tipping, with the council prosecuting every case of dumping. Plus four extra new fly-tipping clearance teams, enabling the council to clear fly-tipping from land that's not council-owned and to generally do more.

The Council will also undertake "low-level" hedge-trimming and minor repairs on privately-owned heritage buildings, to prevent neglected corners from becoming attractive to fly-tippers.

There's also now a new online form to report waste dumping and dog fouling to the council, though you may also want to use Fix My Street as it allows photo uploads.
