Portsmouth City Council will combine several services to form a Clean City team on Monday, April 20.

The aim is to keep Portsmouth as clean, safe and tidy as possible.

The services will include waste management and collection, waste disposal, street cleaning, green and clean, community wardens, and environmental enforcement officers.

A need has been identified to review the work carried out by the community warden, environmental enforcement officer 
and estate service officer teams.

‘This is an excellent opportunity for us to really make a change in the way we as a council deal with problems such as fly-tipping, dog fouling, litter, community safety and waste management’ said Donna Jones, leader 
of Portsmouth City 
Council.

‘The intervention will work with staff to identify the demands placed on them, how practice can be improved, where roles can be combined, and how we can best make use of the dedicated teams we have available to us.’
