We have teamed up with Hull City Council Waste Management Department and Community Payback to help tackle litter and keep our streets in Hull tidy and clean.
Community Payback utilises offenders who have been ordered to carry out designated hours of unpaid work. They will be assessed first to deem their suitability to work in the Community.
Our Hull Community Safety Team have joined forces with Hull City Council Waste Management Team and Community Payback to help keep our streets clean from fly tipping and loose refuse.
When fire crews or the Community Safety Team identify loose refuge in the community, they take a photograph and send it through to Hull City Council, who then organise Community Payback to remove it.
This effective initiative has helped support a reduction in deliberate fires by showing a decrease of 41% in Hull, compared to that of last year.
Clean streets matter as it helps:
- Support a healthier environment
- Allows for better public safety
- Keeps our pets and animal friends safe
- Helps keep our sewers and drains clean
Stephanie Smith, Public Safety Manager, said:
“The success of this initiative has been overwhelming; Hull fire crews, Community Safety Team, Hull City Council Waste Management Team and Community Payback have worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of our community.”
We would like to encourage our community to love your street.
