Stapleford Summer Community Clean And Recycle Event
Stapleford was the focus of this year’s summer community clean event last week as residents joined forces with Council employees and contractors in the Tevery Close/Copeland Avenue area.
Local young people were also invited to join in with the activities and accompany the Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Stan Heptinstall MBE on a litter picking walk.
The event was organised by Broxtowe Borough Council to help support residents to take pride in their local area and to keep their neighbourhood clean.
A Swap-Shop was also available on the day to reduce the number of unwanted items being thrown away as waste. Residents are invited to come along to exchange or donate unwanted items of household furniture which others can use.
A skip was available for residents to dispose of household and garden waste and a team of caretakers assisted residents in the area to move and dispose of bulky items.
The big clean-up coincided with environmental improvements including hedge and grass cutting, a window cleaning service on the flats at Copeland Avenue and block cleaning and clearances.
Information stands for services in the borough and information and advice on keeping your home safe were also available on the day from the Fire and Rescue and Nottinghamshire Police services.
