Fife Council’s dedicated Environmental Action Team are working in the Kincardine Area tackling local problem areas which are not usually cleaned or serviced as part of the Services normal programme of work.

The 10 staff have been employed to work across two teams, carrying out specific street cleaning duties and deep cleaning areas of neglect.  The Teams have previously spent 6-weeks working in Levenmouth and Cowdenbeath, making a huge impact on the areas and giving these communities a boost.

The permanent squads started in October 2017 and are initially targeting one ward in each of the seven council areas before working their way across the whole of Fife. They will be there to clean, sweep, hoe, spray, cut protruding branches, remove debris and detritus, edge any encroachment, report broken fencing and repair if required, remove or report graffiti and will not leave an area until it has been cleaned properly.

Councillor Kate Stewart stated: “I welcome and value this team of Council staff who I have great admiration for the sterling work they do in keeping the local environment looking good and litter free”.
