Love Your Street
What is Love Your Street?
Love Your Street is a new borough-wide initiative inviting green-fingered residents, schools, businesses and community groups to show off their community pride.
It will look to encourage residents to take an active role in caring for their communities – as individuals by not dropping litter, or dog owners picking up after their pets; or working together to organise community activities such as litter picks or flower planting.
Across a number of campaigns, North Tyneside Council collects over 10 tonnes of litter and plants hundreds of thousands of bulbs on roadside verges and per year.
Love Your Street will encompass these campaigns, such as the Big Spring Clean and the Autumn Campaign, and bring them under one year-round initiative, inviting residents to be a part of the work that keeps North Tyneside looking spick and span.
Together we will tackle issues with litter and dog fouling in our borough, ensuring that it remains a great place to live, work and visit
How can you get involved?
There are a number of ways residents can get involved with this new campaign, including litter picks and flower plantings.
The council will support residents in their efforts, supplying litter picks and bags for any street clean-ups and offering to collect any rubbish collected afterwards.
You can register your area to be a part of Love Your Street by completing the form attached to this webpage and selecting the Love Your Street category.
A resource pack to help residents coordinate and promote their events is available and can be found below.

Prizes are available and winners will be invited to the award presentation night in October.
