Cleaner, Safer, Greener

We're bringing together staff from across the Council alongside community volunteers and partner agencies to make Newark and Sherwood an even cleaner, safer and greener place to be.

Activities to ensure the district is cleaner, safer and greener are part of the Council's Community Plan, which outlines the Council's objectives.


We're making our district even cleaner by focusing on:

  • increasing the reporting of littering, dog-fouling and fly-tipping
  • reducing littering, dog-fouling and fly-tipping
  • increased reporting to build a map of the district to enable targeted cleaning activities
  • reducing litter levels by supporting and encouraging community litter picks
  • taking an uncompromising approach to the use of fixed penalty charges for environmental offences
