Environment Visual Audits
Ensuring the West End’s streets are clean and free of rubbish is one of New West End Company’s key objectives. On a weekly basis we grade the streets for environmental cleanliness based on a list of National Indicators that are designed to measure levels of litter, detritus, graffiti and fly posting.
If you would like to know more and volunteer to do the audits with our team please contact Bruna.Silva@newwestend.com
