Skips help clean up neighbourhood

Nearly 100 tonnes of rubbish have been collected in a move to make Allerton and Hunts Cross  cleaner and greener ,
 
Local councillors fund community skips throughout the year but on two recent weekends  they joined with LMH to  provide 12 skips  across housing estates for residents to dispose household waste.
 
Councillor Rachael O’Byrne  said “We wanted to provide free community skips as they are useful for residents who don’t have access to a car and it  helps to stop flytipping.
 
“It’s been great to see the impact the skips have had. It was really encouraging to see lots of residents using the facility and helping each other with the heavy lifting!
 
“We also held a street surgery asking residents how we can continue to improve the area.”
 
If residents in the ward would like to apply for a community skip they can email Rachael.O’Byrne@liverpool.gov.uk
