Environmental Task Force

What is it?

The Environmental Task Force (ETF) aims to revolutionise the way the city is maintained and gives the public the opportunity to make its voice heard through Facebook and Twitter. This real time information from the public will be gathered at a state-of the - art command centre in Bridgeton, with 30 rapid response teams dispatched to tackle the issues as quickly as possible. The ETF's main aim is to tackle environmental issues including fly tipping, littering and dog fouling. An emphasis will also be placed on improving neighbourhoods throughout the city through environmental enhancement.

The ETF model sees the city's 21 wards grouped into four Task Force Cycles. An ETF team will arrive in a ward each week and work on that area before starting again in a new ward the following week.

A typical ETF team comprises of specialist units who will focus on graffiti removal, improving roads, dog fouling, community payback and littering.

And as part of the programme a major recruitment drive will take place which will see unemployed people of all ages from across the city trained up as ETF officers.
