Love Where You Live campaign clears 10 tonnes of rubbish

Published 23 January 2017

On Tuesday 17 January, a team of people worked together to clean up areas of the Rivers estate in Airedale as part of the Love Where You Live campaign, which encourages residents to take pride in where they live.

Employees from both WDH and Wakefield Council spent time removing bulky items from around the streets to help residents clear the area.  By the end of the day, a total of 10 tonnes of rubbish was collected which is nearly the equivalent of six cars.

James Sharpe, WDH’s Estate Manager, said: “Thank you to all our volunteers who helped to clear the rubbish.  Environmental quality across the area continues to improve and this is being supported by residents who are rightfully proud of their community.”  

Mick Hutchinson, a member of the Airedale Neighbourhood Management Board said: “The work that WDH and Wakefield Council are doing to clean up some streets in Airedale is fantastic. I know other areas are crying out for the same service so it would be great if we could offer this across the district.  The bulk collections really help people who can’t afford to pay for items removing and helps them to avoid resorting to fly tipping.”
