H&F Council has been working harder than ever to ensure streets remain litter free thanks to its innovative Report It app.
It’s never been easier for residents to tell the council about environmental problems in their communities and the app, which is part of the council’s Report It service, allows problems such as dumped rubbish, dog mess and noise nuisance to be logged directly.
Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents Services, Cllr Wesley Harcourt, said: “It is fantastic to see residents taking advantage of Report It and the increasing numbers reflect how well it is being used. As a result, we’re working harder than ever, responding to residents’ reports and prosecuting those whose actions blight the lives of others.”
The Report It service launched in 2012 and last year residents made 7,289 reports, averaging 607 a month. This was almost double the figures from 2013, where 4,443 reports were received.
People can report any issues, stating time, date and exact location via the council website, or the app which is available for smartphones and tablets.
The Report It service covers a huge range of environmental issues, including reporting stray dogs, vandalism, abandoned shopping trolleys and illegal street trading. The full range of problems can be viewed on the Report It page of the council website here.
Alternatively download the H&F Report It app to your smartphone or tablet and you can directly submit any issue or complaint, along with photographs and the exact location.
