Use the council app to help keep your neighbourhood clean

Published on: Friday, 21-August-2015

Did you know you can use the free Knowsley Council app to help keep your neighbourhood clean?

You can let us know if you spot littering, fly tipping or dog fouling by downloading the council app for free from the App Store, Google Play or Windows Store. When using the app while you are out and about, you can also pinpoint on a map exactly where the problem is and upload a photograph to help us find and fix the issue.

Once the incident has been reported, we aim to respond within the following times: fly tipping and dog fouling – 5 days (hazardous waste 24 hours);  graffiti – 5 days (offensive graffiti 24 hours). However, due to budget cuts, the council has been forced to reduce the frequency of some of its street cleansing services and residents may find that litter bins are not routinely emptied, or streets cleansed, as often as they were previously.

The service will continue to undertake daily cleansing of shop frontages and town centres. Knowsley Council’s Street Scene services remain committed to delivering high standards of environmental cleanliness and maintaining our grounds and open spaces to a good standard across the borough.
