A team of council workers is gearing up to tackle the 12 worst grotspots in Harrow, with your help.
Harrow Council, in a campaign supported by the Harrow Observer, wants you to help identify a dirty dozen of the worst graffiti-daubed walls, flytippers' favourite spots or litterbug havens.
As the worst offenders are identified, a council team will go and blitz the 'dirty dozen'.
The council will identify the first few areas, tackling one grotspot every week from now until Christmas as part of its borough-wide pledge to provide clean streets and a green environment for residents.
Councillor Susan Hall, deputy council leader and portfolio holder for environment services, said: "Harrow's streets are getting cleaner and the council continues to invest resources in this area. For instance, we recently agreed an extra £750,000 for environmental services and a portion of this investment funded a new team of 15 street cleaners to ensure Harrow's shopping areas always look their best.
"We always welcome information from the local community and I would like to encourage residents to nominate any areas that they know are in need of a clean-up."
Editor David Tilley said: "Our surroundings, such as the state of our streets, landmarks and public parks, have a huge impact on how we feel about the area in which we live.
"I hope we can work together to help make the borough cleaner, brighter and ultimately a happier place in which to live and work."
The closing date for nominations is November 30. However, the council will be considering suggestions from the middle of October, so get your responses in early.
A grotspot will be cleaned each week until just before Christmas, starting with Whitchurch Lane, Edgware, which the blitz team began to smarten up this week.
