Great British September Clean Halton Housing Colleagues

Colleagues make clean sweep and join great British litter-pick

25th September 2020

Colleagues from across Halton Housing braved the wet weather earlier this week for two litter picks across the borough to support Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British September Clean campaign 

The two litter picks took place in the Ellesmere Street area of Runcorn and Arley Drive area of Widnes.  

A whopping 50 bags of litter were collected overall with 33 bags in Runcorn alone.  

Originally named the ‘Great British Spring Clean’ the campaign was moved from the original date in March due to the start of coronavirus pandemic to become the Great British September Clean.  

Our colleagues joined more than 680,000 volunteers across the country who pledged to give their time, enthusiasm and excitement to support the campaign and join forces to collect and safely dispose of single-use plastic from our streets, parks and beaches, recycling as much as possible. 

Earlier this year, we provided a funding boost for ‘Keep Widnes Tidy’, a voluntary litter picking group in Widnes to purchase new equipment

Christine Walker, Halton Housing’s Environmental Services Manager said: “It’s great to see colleagues from across the organisation, including office-based roles come together to take action against litter and help to improve our neighbourhoods.  

Everybody wants to live in a neighbourhood that is clean and tidy and somewhere to be proud of and we’re delighted to be playing our part and improving people’s lives in the process.” 

Following the success of the litter-picks, we’ll be holding regular clean-up and litter-picks in the community over the coming months with residents being encouraged to get involved whilst adhering to government guidelines. Full details will be published on our website in the events section and social media channels when available.
