Street Champions are residents who use some of their free time to look after their local environment, whether that is the street they live on, their local park, green space or the town centre.

The Street Champions scheme was created to help provide support and equipment to residents and volunteers to help keep Darlington tidy.

Street champions after a litter pick

When you register to be come a Street Champion you will be provided with the equipment to carry out the task. The pack includes a litter picker, hoop, gloves and orange bags.

We can also provide children’s litter pickers, hi-vis vests as well as graffiti removal wipes upon request.

As you travel around Darlington you might have noticed the orange bags left next to litter bins and wondered who has left them there, that would be our dedicated Street Champions for Street Scene to collect.

You are also able to leave the orange bags next to your household waste wheelie bin on collection day.

Filled litter bags after a collection

For larger items dumped or fly tipped please contact Street scene so they can be removed by telephone 01325 405111 or email [email protected].

If you are interest in registering to be a Street Champion, please contact the Countryside Team by telephone 01325 406719 or email [email protected].

Equipment can be collected from the Clock Tower Lodge in South Park by appointment (weekdays 9am-3pm) or alternatively delivery can be arranged to your address.

The Street Champions were winners of the ‘Contribution to the Environment’ category at the Best of Darlington Awards in 2018.

Street Champions also support the organised litter campaigns such as Litter Free Durham & Darlington’s ‘Big Spring Clean’ and Keep Britain Tidy’s ‘Great British Spring Clean’.
