Nottingham City Housing and local Council Street Team – Barbury Drive, Clifton.
Nottingham City Homes were alerted that some alleyways in the area were full of rubbish and fly-tipping, Consequently Prairie Bryant Neighbourhood Development Officer, West and East Clifton Wards, co-ordinated, on 17thMay, a fantastic joint effort with Nottingham City Homes and the local Street Team to clear the alleyways of rotten rubbish and fly-tipping – not forthe feint heart-ed! On the day staff from both departments, local residents and Councillor Maria Watson helped too. The items we came across could have been put in the general or recycle bins and of course Nottingham City Council provide a free household Bulk Waste Collection Service which you can book on-line or Tel: 0115 915 2000 to arrange.
Summerwood Day Centre
The centre caters for adults with learning disabilities. On Wednesday 22nd May 2019 two citizens from the day centre Nicola and Chris, with the support of a member of staff Sarah, Councillor Andrew Rule, CPO Jon Hartley and myself took a leisurely walk in the sun and spent an hour clearing parts of Summerwood Lane. This litter picking is part of the weekly time table where citizens have the opportunity to help to keep the local area tidy and as part of this session the citizens learn about recycling and up-cycling, local wildlife and of course litter! It wasn’t long before we filled a bag with litter.
Nottingham Trent University: A453
Together on 23rdMay, with a team of three from Facilities Management, Ellie from the Sustainable Department, and local resident Cynthia, we spent an hour in the sun and cleared the safe parts of the road, grass banks that front the NTU and part of Rivergreen greens – 5 bags collected. Helping to keep NG11 clean but note this area has many bins!
