Chorley 'grot spot' clean up success
A neighbourhood clean up saw back alleys transformed by Chorley’s Community Payback team.
A clean-up day took place last Wednesday after the are to the rear of Hamilton Road was identified as a ‘grot spot’ that needed attention to spruce them up.
A large skip was placed on Hamilton Road, Chorley, from 9am until 2.30pm to help remove large waste and bulky household items that had been abandoned in the alleyway behind residential housing.
Coun Adrian Lowe, who oversees clean-up days at Chorley Council said: “It was identified that the back alleyways of Hamilton Road were in a particularly poor state and that residents needed help in getting the area back to a good condition.
“Moving forward, we hope that residents will take pride in the area by working together to ensure that it is well maintained and kept clean and tidy from now on.”
This project is part of around 15 clean-up days each year which are aimed at assisting residents with bulky household items by giving them access to skips and helping them remove items free of charge.
