New bins at Walton Hall Park

People who use Walton Hall Park are being encouraged to make sure it is clean and litter-free.

The park will receive 20 new and replacement park bins, which will be installed in the New Year.

This is part of a scheme which will see hundreds of new bins and replacement bins located in parks and surrounding streets after the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, approved a capital programme for the scheme which will see ugly or faulty bins being replaced as well as new bins installed.

The new bins will be placed in locations throughout the park where they are needed most to help and address problems associated with cigarette stubs and dog fouling as well as litter.

Deputy Mayor, Councillor Ann O’Byrne, said: There is never any excuse for litter in our parks but we are making it easier for users to deposit their rubbish.

“One of the things which deters people from using parks is when litter is strewn over the paths and grass or dog-owners have not cleared up after their pets.

“We are playing our part in keeping Walton Hall Park tidy by providing extra bins and I would appeal to those people who use it to make sure they keep the park tidy and litter-free.”
