Illegal Dumping In Our Towns (I.D.I.O.T)

Love Stoke-on-Trent

Spring has sprung and we are asking for your help to make the city sparkle!

Join the Big Spring Clean in the Community!

We're hosting a city-wide clean-up event from Monday 15 April to Sunday 21 April. There will be activities happening throughout Stoke-on-Trent, so you can easily find a way to get involved.

Over the past eight months, we've seen a fantastic community effort to reduce illegal dumping. Residents, groups, and businesses have come together under the #LoveSOT banner to organise litter picks and clean up their neighbourhoods. This momentum is key!

As well as your ongoing support, our environmental services team has issued over 1,500 fines for illegal dumping and removed more than 5,000 instances of dumped waste. We've also increased fines for environmental crimes to further deter offenders.

However, keeping our streets clean is a team effort. That's why your help is so important!

Events in your area

The Big Spring Clean in the Community is a great start, but you can make a difference year-round. Many local groups organise regular litter picks.

Do you know of any regular litter picks in your area?

Let us know by emailing environmental.admin@stoke.gov.uk. We'll help spread the word and connect you with your local clean-up crew.

Together, we can make Stoke-on-Trent a cleaner and more pleasant place for everyone!

Please remember: Dress for the weather, wear appropriate footwear and bring a bottle of water.
