H&F's new Street Czar Andy Stocker

Landlords and estates agents must help keep streets clean says H&F

Hammersmith & Fulham Council is asking landlords and estate agents to do their part in keeping our streets clean.

It’s part of the council’s efforts to make H&F the greenest borough in the country as the council cracks down on dumped rubbish, fly tips and waste that has been put out on the wrong day or wrong place.

As roughly 30 per cent of H&F residents are private renters, the council’s Street Czar Andy Stocker is writing to landlords and estate agents to reinforce the rules and remind them of their responsibilities for rubbish and waste.

“We’re working hard to keep the streets clean,” said Andy. “And landlords are responsible for ensuring they and their tenants know the rules.”

Taking dumpers to court

H&F Council will take enforcement action against offenders wherever possible.

Recently the Street Czar’s cameras have picked up a Fulham man dumping furniture in the street and a fly-tipping van driver dumping a mountain of waste in West Kensington.

“There’ll be no excuse for this behaviour,” added Andy.

Who is the Street Czar?

The Street Czar can provide landlords with information, tailored to any individual postcode, detailing how to recycle, where and when to leave household waste and how to book a bulky waste collection.

“We want to be the greenest borough in the country and our Street Czar’s excellent work with local residents, landlords and businesses is essential in helping achieve this,” said Cllr Harcourt, H&F Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents’ Services.

“We’re doing all we can to keep our streets clean and tidy and make H&F a place residents can feel proud of.”

H&F Council launched the Street Czar role this year so it can work quickly and effectively with residents to solve any issues with mess that might occur.

The Czar is working closely alongside Cllr Harcourt, to swiftly resolve residents’ issues.
