Over 100 businesses and organisations have signed up to Sutton Council’s Clean Streets Sutton business pledge in just two months.
There have been one hundred and seven signatures to the pledge, which lays out some simple steps that can be taken to reduce litter around shop fronts and business premises. These may include reducing packaging, installing new bins, or reporting problem areas to the Liberal Democrat-run council.
Shoppers should look out for the green window sticker in shops and businesses who are participating in the Clean Streets Sutton initiative.
Cllr Jill Whitehead, Sutton Council’s Lib Dem Chair of the Environments and Neighbourhoods Committee, said: “The Clean Streets Sutton campaign is an opportunity for residents and local traders to contribute toward a cleaner Sutton.
“We can all do more to help make our streets, town centres, and parks cleaner. I’m delighted to see that we’ve already had so many signatures to our business pledge – that really goes to show how committed local organisations are to helping keep our borough clean and tidy.”
Businesses play an important role in shaping the look and feel of local communities. Operating responsibly and maintaining clean, tidy, litter-free premises can stimulate trade and go a long way towards boosting the local economy. Working together Sutton’s business community has the power to improve the local environment for the benefit of all.
