Julian Road residents help assist successful clean in Ludlow

Related topics: Community

A total of 2.2 tonnes of dirt and leaves were collected during a deep clean of Julian Road in Ludlow yesterday (Thursday 27 October 2011). 

The clean, carried out by Shropshire Council’s streetscene south west team, started at 7.45am.  Their first job included sweeping and digging debris off the pavements onto the road, so the sweeper could collect it. 

After the pavements had been cleaned they were jetwashed for a thorough clean, removing every bit of debris. 

Before the clean, council officers distributed leaflets and posters to advise residents of the event.  The night before, the highways team put out cones to stop motorists from parking along the road. 

All of the residents had moved their vehicles, meaning that the clean took place without disruption. 

Councillor Martin Bennett, Shropshire Council’s deputy Cabinet member, said:

“I’d like to thank the team for their hard work in delivering another very successful deep clean for the local residents.” 

Tracey Huffer, Shropshire Councillor for Ludlow East, said:

“I would like to thank all of the residents of Julian Road for moving their vehicles to allow the deep clean to run smoothly.  Without their co-peration the team would be unable to carry out work to a high standard.  I’m glad to report that over two tonnes of rubbish has been collected, including leaves, mud, weeds and litter.”
