Flytipping and litter

We the undersigned petition the council to Increase enforcement of flytipping and litter, especially in urban areas where it is now often a daily occurrence and impacting on people’s quality of living. North Northamptonshire Council need dedicated officers working on resolving the litter and flytipping issues, and issuing fines. If given proper resource, this will generate income for the council and have a significant positive impact on the wider community.

Flytipping and litter has become increasingly problematic, costing the council time and money to clear it, and street cleaning time that could be spent on maintaining pathways and alleys is spent on removing these items.

Increased enforcement would save on clearing costs, freeing up capacity to complete other important street cleaning work. Were it not for the community litter picking groups, this issue would be far worse, however, even with their support this problem has long been at an unmanageable level. Something has to change and we implore the council look at improving and increasing the enforcement of flytipping and litter urgently, and redirect or recruit resource to tackle this issue.

This ePetition runs from 20/10/2023 to 29/02/2024.
