We know that the appearance of our neighbourhoods is very important to residents, but rubbish – particularly larger items of household rubbish – left on our streets can cause a range of issues.
To help tackle the problem in one area of Middlesbrough, Thirteen brought together people from the area to remove bulky items of waste and remove incidents of fly tipping.
Staff from Thirteen’s Neighbourhood Team, Caretakers, Grounds Maintenance and Customer Involvement teams helped out, along with local councillors and residents to help with the clean-up in an area of Pallister Park that has faced problems with fly tipping.
We encouraged residents to bring out any unwanted items to prevent any future fly tipping or untidy gardens.
On the day we cleared 8.5 tons of waste, cleared five alleyways and removed:
- general mixed waste
- five paint tins
- four mattresses
- two PCs/TVs
- six fridges.
We took a number of photos on the day and you can find out more about what happened in this special presentation.
It is illegal to leave rubbish on streets, waste ground or alleys. You should take bulky items of waste to household waste recycling centres or contact your local council to come to your home to remove it.
