Michael Fisher, Head of Environmental Protection at Kingdom, said: “This is a new service that Kingdom’s Environmental Protection Division will be offering, and is further evidence of Kingdom’s intention to extend and diversify their services to local authorities across the United Kingdom, building upon the foundations laid as pioneers of the Environmental Enforcement service we now so expertly provide”.

Kingdom’s Environmental Protection teams are led by experts with an ex-police and military background, and deliver over 130,000 environmental protection hours per year on behalf of local authorities across the UK.

Kingdom’s environmental enforcement services include tackling street litter, dog fouling & control orders, commercial & residential waste & waste disposal licence checks, smoking in prohibited areas, and the illegal distribution of free material. Kingdom also tackles anti-social behaviour, including criminal damage, graffiti and fly-tipping & posting.
