Chelmsford City Council recognises the social, environmental and economic benefits of a cleaner greener Chelmsford.

There are three cornerstones of intervention to tackle litter and fly-tipping:

  • information - ensuring effective and consistent messaging to prevent littering
  • infrastructure - improving the facilities and services needed to reduce litter and promote recycling
  • enforcement - strengthening the deterrent effect of legislation

This plan outlines our actions against each of these cornerstones.

We will publish our plan and review it annually to ensure that we are fulfilling our actions, and to help us identify areas where we can make further progress.

We realise we cannot address this issue alone; we will work collectively with the local partners to share resources, deliver objectives, provide knowledge and ideas and influence others.
