Clean Up Campaign

THE BIG CLEAN UP - Love Where You Live?

Sudbury’s streets now look cleaner, greener and brighter thanks to a 3 day community clean-up event organised by members of the Sudbury Town Residents Association (STRA).


STRA members teamed up with local residents, councillors, the neighbourhood police and Veolia to clean up the streets of Sudbury, and inform other residents in the area about what they can do to keep their streets and parks litter and rubbish free.


Renu Kaul, Vice-Chairman of STRA spoke passionately about the need for residents to take pride in their local area and be proactive in helping to make Brent cleaner and greener. She said: 

“We can’t put all the responsibility for keeping this borough clean and safe on the council, as a community we need to take ownership.

“If we all work together we can make a real difference in this borough. These clean-up days are not just about picking the litter up from the streets, they are about inspiring members of the community to get involved and help make Brent a beautiful, clean place to live.”


You don’t have to organise a clean-up event to play your part though, you can make a difference and keep Brent’s streets clean and tidy in a few simple clicks by downloading and using the Cleaner Brent app.

Councillor Eleanor Southwood, Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

“Keeping our streets and parks as clean as possible is a priority for us. Joining forces with residents and local groups is vital for tackling the anti-social behaviour of a few people who continue to show no respect for our environment or their neighbours."

“So I'd like to thank Renu and the other members of STRA for all their hard work organising the clean-up day. It's great to see our communities taking pride in Brent's streets and parks and going to such great efforts to help clean up our borough so it's safe and pleasant for everyone who lives here."

“With everyone doing their bit, we can make sure Brent is a place that we we'll all feel very proud to call home.”

Cleaner Sudbury - Well done Hamptons

Cleaner Sudbury - Well done Hamptons


Hamptons shop front was splashed with Paan spit for months and the stains were building up and were getting worse, Hampton' staff felt that they could not rely on the Council to jet wash this mess. They took their own brushes and mopped and cleaned their own shop front and the neighbouring area. The pavement is now sparkling clean, residents are pleased to see a clean shop front and be able to move around freely and shop locally.

A big "thank you" from STRA to Hampton's staff. STRA is for "cleaner, greener, safer" Sudbury.

Week of action

STRA joined forces with Brent Council for the Partnership Week of Action.


STRA’s Event on Saturday 2 August 2014 was at Butler’s Green between 11 am to 3 pm to increase STRA membership, increase awareness and Litterpick (optional).


STRA along with Brent Council  focused on paan chewing and spitting – the health implications, crime reduction, street drinking, cleaner streets, anti-social behaviour, environmental issues and general awareness of services provided free of charge  by Brent Council.


STRA Members  had the chance to meet their councillors, find out what’s happening in their area and let Brent know what services it does well and how we can go about improving them even further.

Refuse details for those who live in flats

One of our members has brought the following leaflet to our attention. The leaflet relates to how those living in flats can recycle more.

Do not tolerate the dumping of rubbish

A few days ago local residents and STRA members witnessed one of the shopkeepers in Sudbury Town dumping boxes of rubbish in Eton Avenue.


The STRA members stopped to check and although the shopkeeper tried to hide the source of the rubbish they rummaged through and found the shop details. They reported the matter to the Council and the shopkeeper was fined and warned not to do it again.


We urge all STRA members to be vigilant and if they witness something and can provide evidence to report similar incidents to the Council by phoning Streetcare on 89375050 or emailing

STRA’S third litter pick was this year on Saturday, 15 September 2012 at Butler’s Green. 
We assembled at Butler’s Green at 10.30 am and finished at 1 pm. 
All members of the community came together to make a difference in Sudbury Town.
