Successful deep clean along Market Street, Craven Arms

Related topics: Community

Residents and visitors can now enjoy a cleaner Market Street in Craven Arms following a successful deep clean by Shropshire Council’s environmental maintenance team last month (Thursday 29 September 2011).   

A total of 0.82 tonnes of detritus including weeds, mud, and leaves were collected, as well as litter.  The pavements were then manually swept and jetwashed. 

Prior to the deep clean, posters and flyers were distributed along the street. This was to inform residents that, in order to undertake street cleansing, all vehicles parked on Market Street would be required to move for up to two hours whilst the work was carried out. 

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

“Once again the team has done an excellent job and I’d like to thank them for their hard work.” 

David Evans, a Shropshire Councillor for Church Stretton and Craven Arms, said:

“I would like to thank the residents for their continued support and co-operation during the deep cleans.  It’s very important, especially along streets like Market Street, that they move their vehicles.  This then enables the operation to run smoothly and provide a high standard of cleansing.”

To date, the council’s streetscene south west team have carried out a total of 14 deep cleans across eight towns and villages in 2011.
