CLEAN UP: Nearly five tonnes of rubbish removed in A41 spring clean

 Published on: 10th April 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Four tonnes of rubbish was removed from the A41 in seven days earlier this month.

Despite challenging conditions for staff logistics due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the clean-up crew cleared litter from over 20 kilometres of the A41, including slip roads.

Six months ago the litter-picking team cleared six tonnes of rubbish from the same stretch of the A41 at a cost of nearly £28,000.

Portfolio Holder for environment, sustainability and regulatory services, councillor Alan Anderson, said: “I am very proud of our dedicated Clean, Safe and Green crews who in spite of everything have still managed to get out there and carry out this crucial clean-up. Remember to always keep your rubbish in your vehicle until you can find a bin.”

Due to people still continuing to litter from their cars, it is necessary to carry out these large-scale clean-ups.

Approximately £1 billion of tax payers’ money is spent in the UK every year cleaning up after people who toss their rubbish out of their vehicle windows.
