Picture: Councillor Krupa Sheth, Brent Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “The council is doing everything it can to pick up the dumped rubbish but I know residents would prefer it was not dumped there in the first place. We are fed up with fly-tippers thinking they can get away with dumping rubbish on our streets and we need your help to identify the culprits.”
Brent Council has a new weapon in the fight against grime crime i to catch people selfishly spoiling some of the borough’s streets for everyone else.
Responding to residents' anger, that devious dumpers are not playing by the rules, the council is set to release CCTV images of people carrying out grime crimes, like fly tipping, along with a public appeal to identify them.
The council is launched the latest phase of the #lovewhereyoulive campaign on St Valentine’s Day, with hard-hitting ‘WANTED’ posters, which could leave litterlouts red-faced and out of pocket.
If the culprits are not identified by the posters, the enviro-crime images will go online on a monthly basis so they reach a wider audience. Once an offender is identified, the council will do everything possible to ensure they are taken to court where they face an unlimited fine or prison sentence.
If you see someone you know doing something they should not, email Brent anonymously by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 8937 4994. Information provided by residents will be treated in strict confidence.
