A team of waste enforcement and anti-social behaviour officers are patrolling hotspot areas targeted by illegal dumpers as part of a summer-long crackdown.

Council bosses have used statistical data to identify where and when littering and illegal waste dumping is most likely to occur.

Launched last week, the action aims to make the street of Brent streets cleaner, greener and safer as part of the council’s ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign.

Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “Our ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign encourages Brent residents to show their love for their neighbourhood by correctly disposing of their waste, by recycling, organising clean up days, reporting dumped rubbish and we have had a great response to it so far.”
