The leaflet has also been translated into different languages in the hope that more citizens understand our environmental policies and contribute to a cleaner city.
If you think this leaflet would benefit a resident, community group or organisation near you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy.
The work by our Street Scene teams doesn't just focus on cleaning; it also focuses on enhancing the public realm, the environment and the character of neighbourhoods. And our fantastic teams have done just that!
