In February 2021, Cov Clean Streets team started work to help clean up litter and clean pavements and gullies across the city. It’s part of a £2.1 million spring clean ahead of the City of Culture.
They will be working to help tackle environmental antisocial behaviour and improve the feeling of pride for those who live in the city.
Extra skips will also be brought in at specific problem areas, while residents will be offered half-price bulky waste collections between 1 February and 30 April – a move which is hoped to tackle an increase in fly-tipping during the pandemic.
You may have seen our teams working in your street.
This is what we have been doing:
- Clearing litter from the gullies and pavements
- Removing any items left on the street
- Emptying all of the bins
- Sweeping the pavement
We want to help keep your street clean and tidy but we need your help to do that.
You can help us by:
- Taking any excess waste to the tip
- Not leaving any loose rubbish out on your street
- Making sure your bin lid is closed so rubbish can’t blow out of it
