The Suffolk Waste Partnership, which consists of all the Suffolk Council’s including the County and partners, have been working on a project aimed at reducing flytipping in Suffolk. This project builds on the work originally designed in Hertfordshire and has since been used across the country. The SCRAP fly-tipping campaign is aimed at residents and businesses whose waste is sometimes fly-tipped by unlicensed operators, who often offer to remove waste at a ‘bargain’ price – only to then dump it. It aims to remind people that they should only allow licensed waste carriers to take waste away for them. 

 

In Suffolk this campaign will be delivered primarily through social media messaging and I have attached a sample of a post that will be used (along with additional wording). To maximise its success and spread the messages as wide as possible, I am writing to ask if you would support the campaign through your councils, or village associations,  Facebook Pages, Twitter feeds and/or websites by reposting and ‘sharing’ our posts as we release them. The Facebook and Twitter posts will be posted on the ‘Suffolk Recycling’ pages so please have a look and hit the follow button.

 

I will send you the full comms plan in the coming weeks, which will detail the dates of these releases, but in the meantime if you have any questions or comments please let me know.

 

Kind regards,
