Clean-up of Carsic alleyways

Posted onPosted on 30th Jul

Ashfield District Council has carried out a clean-up around the alleyways of the Carsic estate in Sutton.

Street cleansing crews have cleared litter, dog mess, weeds and moss.

Coun John Smallridge said: “Following feedback from residents the team has worked hard to clear litter, weeds and moss making the alleyways more accessible for all.

“This is just part of our commitment to making Ashfield a cleaner and greener place to live, work and visit.”

The council’s street cleansing crews work seven days a week, litter picking, weed spraying, road sweeping, empting litter bins and clearing alleyways. The team emptied Ashfield’s 1,200 litter bins over 22,000 times during lockdown.

Coun Tom Hollis, deputy leader and councillor for Sutton, said: “The Street Cleansing crews are some of the unsung heroes of the Council and I personally want to thank them for all their hard work. They work all year round to keep our streets and pathways clean.

“Through lock down they have been busier than ever. We’ve found that over the past few months many of the street litter bins were being filled with domestic waste, which is not what the bins are intended for. So, I just to take this opportunity to remind residents that street bins are for litter and disposing of domestic waste is should be done responsibly.”
