Throughout August you may also see us out and about in the district, promoting the anti-litter message and assisting you in maintaining a cleaner environment.

And it's not just anti-litter messages we promote we are also involved in combating other environmental issues including dog fouling, fly posting, fly-tipping and parking issues.

Did you see us?

On the 23rd of August 2010 the Street Scene team filmed a video to highlight the issue of littering within the District. We would like to thank all those who came to support us in the filming of this production. The planned first showing will be at Stephenson College early in September 2010. Below are some photographs from the filming of the video.
