Keep it Clear Project Officer

PECT is working with Anglian Water to decrease the amount of blockage incidents occurring within Peterborough, specifically in those streets with a history of blockages. As part of the Keep It Clear campaign, a targeted behaviour change project will be delivered, focusing on residents and businesses within the affected zones. The campaign will capture information on people’s waste disposal habits and provide advice to residents on alternative solutions.

One of the approaches we will undertake is a campaign of door-to-door engagement throughout the areas. The aims are to deliver one-to-one advice and practical tips to educate people on the environmental impact their waste can have and encourage people to dispose of their fats, oils and grease appropriately. We're looking for Keep it Clear Project Officers to help us with this.
