The Clean Kent Campaign
The Clean Kent Campaign was launched in May 2004 in a bid to combat littering, graffiti, flytipping. Our aim is to reduce these issues that impact on our environment and the beauty of our countryside. We want to make Kent a cleaner county and one which we can all enjoy and be proud of.

The law now states that if you have any of your rubbish removed and it ends up being flytipped, you could be held responsible and fined. When dealing with waste removal services or tradesmen where rubbish will be generated e.g. builders, plumber, gardening contractors, always ask for a valid waste carriers licence.
Householders should follow these simple steps to help protect yourself and the environment.
- Ask for their waste carrier registration number
- Check the number with the Environment Agency online or by calling 08708 506506.
- Keep a note of all the information you receive from the waste collector/tradesman.
- If they're not registered don't use them. Inform Clean Kent of the rogue trader immediately by calling 0845 345 0210.
Tradesman and Waste Carriers who wish to become licenced waste carriers must register with the Environment Agency. Use the Environment Agency's interactive map to find out the nearest waste site to you.
