The This is my Doncaster campaign is all about getting local people to take pride in their community.
The council doesn’t have the massive financial resources needed to keep everywhere spotless, and it already costs us £500,000 each year to pick up dumped rubbish and dropped litter.
The only way we are going to make a positive impact to protect the environment is by working together with local people.
A key part of the This is my Doncaster campaign is our successful community action days.
These take place across Doncaster, and see council staff and volunteers blitz clean the local area, collect dumped waste and concentrate enforcement in one community at a time.
The purpose of these dedicated community days is to get the area looking clean and tidy, and then hand some responsibility for maintaining this to the residents while we continue to carry out routine cleanses.
A selection of photos from the day is available here.
