Waste and environment


Recycling and Waste pages provide information on recycling and waste management services in the Epping Forest District.

Crime, Safety and Environment pages cover four key areas:

  • Environments and Neighbourhoods Team plays a key role in the delivery of the Council’s “Safer, Cleaner, Greener” strategy.  The uniformed team of seven Environment & Neighbourhood Officers (ENO) are accredited under the Essex Police Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS) and are empowered to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for a range of environmental crime offences such as littering and dog fouling. 
  • Community Safety Partnership is a statutory body of different organisations who work together to reduce crime and disorder in the district.
  • Safeguarding children, young people and adults.
  • Human Trafficking - what are the signs to look for?

The Engineering, Drainage and Water Team offers advice and support to residents on land drainage matters.

Parking Services pages cover on street and off street parking, and also give details on How to Pay a parking fine or Challenging Your parking fine 

Trees and Landscaping - As the name would suggest Epping Forest District boasts a rich heritage of trees and landscape. A number of these trees are either the responsibility of the Council, or are protected by the Council.
