Reducing environmental crime: cigarette butts and dog fouling

Better Bankside have installed a number of new lamp post mounted cigarette bins throughout the area, to help combat the issue of cigarette litter, which is a prevalent problem across Bankside.

So far the pink smart bins have been installed on Copperfield Street, Wardens Grove and Gambia Street, with more to come on Prince Street and Blackfriars Road. Make sure to use them for your gum and cigarette butts to help keep Bankside clean for everyone. 

Our Community Wardens help to improve the environment by identifying and reporting litter, graffiti, fly tipping and abandoned vehicles to the council's cleansing services. The monitoring of street and estate cleaning helps improve the appearance of the area and discourages further crime and ASB. The Wardens are empowered to issue fixed penalty notices for littering and dog fouling.
