Clean Highways campaign fights back against negative Environmental Protection article

Kingdom’s Environmental Protection division aims to make our streets and public spaces cleaner, safer and greener, working on behalf of local councils to issue Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) for littering, dog fouling, fly tipping, and other anti-social behaviour.

At the end of the day, our aim is to change public behaviour, to stop people dropping litter (and litter includes cigarettes and chewing gum), and to make sure that people do clean up after their dogs, as dog mess is not only unpleasant to see and smell, but can be dangerous, particularly to young children. If people didn’t drop litter, our services wouldn’t be needed, communities would be cleaner and safer, and the taxpayer would be better off – as last year over £1 billion was spent cleaning the UK streets.

Unfortunately, the press often doesn’t see it this way. One such example was a recent article in The Telegraph entitled “Rise of the litter police: council areas where you are 20 times more likely to be fined”.

Kingdom launches new website

Kingdom is very pleased to announce that we have today launched a brand-new website. Our new site can still be viewed at the same web address as it has always been - www.kingdom.co.uk

Our old website had served us and our clients well for a number of years, but it was created when Kingdom’s sole focus was on security, and thus the focus of that site was very much on security.

The new website better reflects how our business has grown, evolved and expanded in recent years and better showcases the four key services that Kingdom offers today, giving an equal focus to Environmental Protection, Facilities Management, Recruitment and Security Solutions.
