DOG mess, fly tipping and litter will be targeted as part of a national day of action in Stafford and Stone next week.
Stafford Borough Council officers will head out into the community to meet ward councillors and see the range of community problems first hand.
It comes in the wake of all 59 councillors being invited to list the top concerns for residents, with most including rubbish, dog mess and pollution.
Borough bosses will be out on September 26, which is also World Environmental Health day, to take a closer look and draw up a timetable to deal with priority problems.
The council has been running a number of campaigns aimed at improving the environment, including anti-dog fouling where dawn and evening patrols regularly go out to problem hotspots.
A webpage called Grimewatch, which publishes photos of rubbish dumped illegally in areas around the borough, has also been set up for residents to anonymously report illegal dumpers.
Councillor Frank Finlay, cabinet member for environment and health, said: “One of the roles our councillors have is to be the eyes and ears of the community. They regularly get calls day and night about issues that affect the area where they live.
“And World Environmental Health Day is a great opportunity for our officers to get out and meet those councillors on their patch to get more of a feel of how the problems can be addressed.”
