South Norfolk Council’s street crews are out and about sweeping fallen leaves from the District’s pavements and streets.
Continuing on from the success of the Council’s Community Litter Pick, South Norfolk Council’s fleet of sweepers have been targeting areas, across the district, that are known to have a heavy leaf fall.
As a result, the sweepers have helped to keep roads and pavements clear, making them better for both the young and the elderly.
Councillor Kay Mason-Billig, Cabinet member for Environment and Recycling said:
“Leaf mulch can be slippery and dangerous, especially for our elderly residents, so every year we work with local people and parish councils to keep the roads and pavements clean and safe to use. We work closely with our town and parish councils to keep South Norfolk looking neat and tidy and we are helped by our communities who this year organised more than 100 litter picks.”
South Norfolk Council’s fleet of sweepers cover thousands of Kilometres every year and collect tonnes of rubbish. The Council also has street cleaning teams that visit the district’s market towns every day to litter pick and help keep them looking tidy.
If you notice a route that is subject to leaf build up and would benefit from clearing or if you know that a particular route or footway that normally suffers from heavy leaf-fall, please send an email to ‘email@example.com’.
