Residents who make an effort to keep their area clean are set to be rewarded.

The council is set to reward people who bin their rubbbish or clean up after their dog as part of the Cleaner Havering Campaign.

Cllr Michael White, Leader of the Council, said: “The message is simple, we want people to work with us to keep the borough spick and span, and to thank people who take pride in their neighbourhood”.

It is part of a project with Havering Council and Asda in Romford.

If people are spotted by Council teams taking pride in the borough, they will be asked to provide their details, which will be entered into a prize draw with a chance of winning £50 worth of vouchers or a treat-filled hamper, courtesy of Asda, Romford.

The scheme will run for six months.

Each month, two winners will be selected – the first prize winner will be given vouchers, and the second prize winner will receive the hamper.

Last year, Havering Council carried out an extensive survey about the cleanliness of the borough and found that dog fouling, litter and vandalism were the top issues residents wanted addressed.

This led to the launch of the Cleaner Havering Campaign, which aims to directly tackle these issues and make the borough even cleaner.

As part of the initiative so far, almost 100 extra bins and more than 30 extra benches have been installed across the borough, as well as significant improvements in street lighting.Abigail Ojo, People Services Manager for Asda in Romford, said: “Working and living in a clean environment is important to most of us, and we’re proud to contribute to this in some small way.”
