Focus on Litter

The issues of littering and fly tipping will be on the agenda at a meeting of South Tyneside Council's Place Select Committee next week.



Members of the committee will receive a presentation updating them on progress made by the Littering and Flytipping Commission.


The commission was launched in 2017 and made eight recommendations on how to tackle the issues.


Iniatives such as spring clean events and beach tidying, as well as local and national campaigns have all been carried out alongside enforcement acticity such as site visits and interventions.


Councillor Audrey McMillan, Chair of the Place Select Committee, said: "Littering and fly tipping absolutely blight our towns and villages and we can all play a role in tackling the problem.


"Our communities have really stepped up and got involved, for example, on one spring clean event, residents helped collect 263 bags of rubbish.


"I'm interested to hear about all the other activity that's been taking place as part of the action plan, as well as what's in store going forward."




The meeting of the Place Select Committee will be held at 10am on Tuesday March 12 at South Shields Town Hall.
