This page provides information on the Environmental Wardens Volunteer Group, what they do and how we support them.

Who are environmental wardens

Environmental wardens are a group of volunteers, responsible for looking after an area of the borough of a size and location suitable for them. This could be as small as the pavement of the street in front of their house. Larger areas include an open space, a row of shops or the roads near a school.

Wardens undertake

  • Litter picking
  • Reporting dog fouling, graffiti, untidy sites, incidents of anti social behaviour, needles, signs of drug or alcohol use
  • Raising awareness of the cleaner, greener environments in their neighbourhoods.

We support them by providing

  • Disposable gloves
  • Picker
  • Bags and bag rings
  • Contact numbers for reporting incidents (including out of hours emergency number and contact names and telephone numbers)
