The first in a series of community clean-ups to make a north Liverpool ward sparkle has taken place.
Staff from the city council, Amey, Riverside’s Your Place Liverpool Mutual Homes, Liverpool Housing Trust, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, Merseyside Police and the Environmental Enforcement Team, along with local councillors took part in a clean-up across the Warbeck ward.
Roads and pavement were cleaned dog dirt scooped up using the Poover machine, alleyways were checked and cleaned, and wheelie bins were taken off the highways to be put inside alley-gates.
Three skips – available to residents – were filled and 12 bags of litter collected,.
“We had a very positive response from residents joined in the clean-up to make sure their community sparkled,” said ward Councillor Ann O’Byrne, “Although we were not blessed with good weather it did not dampen anyone’s enthusiasm to make their neighbourhood cleaner and brighter.”
Similar events will be held once a month until next March. The next clean-up day will be taking place on Monday 17 November in the streets around Orrell Lane/Moss Lane taking in Albert Drive, Halstead Road, Victoria Drive, Redvers Drive, Burwen Drive and Kitchener Drive.
