Following last year’s success, The BIG Ashfield Spring Clean is once again coming to Ashfield.
Ashfield District Council are again inviting residents to have a clear out of their homes and gardens and dispose of their waste as part of The BIG Spring Clean 2019. Rolling out in Sutton on the 11th February The BIG Spring Clean will run over three weeks, with Kirkby, Underwood, Selston and Jacksdale running from 18 February and Hucknall from 25 February.
Extra waste can be bagged and put out with your regular bin collection during the relevant week, extra bin lorries known as ‘Flying Skips’ will be making scheduled stops on Saturday’s allowing residents to dispose of extra waste and items including small furniture, and residents can take advantage of a free bulky waste collection if booked during the Spring Clean.
Cllr Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield District Council says “Following the success of last year’s BIG Ashfield Spring Clean, when the Council collected the largest amount of rubbish ever in a single project, we are proud to announce an even bigger and better Spring Clean this year. We’ve made is easier for all residents to get involved – offering a simple, personalised service. You simply need to bag your extra waste in bin bags and leave it out with your regular bin collection during the week the BIG Spring Clean is in your area.
“We’ll also be using the campaign as an opportunity to target fly tipping and illegal waste carriers in the district, with the recent introduction of the pin hole cameras at fly tipping hotspots we’re sending out a clear message to fly tippers that we are coming for you.
Residents have told us how much they value this extra service. For us as a Council it’s just common sense. We will do everything we can to assist residents with their waste but come down like a ton of bricks on those who fly-tip and dump rubbish. We are committed to tackling issues and informing residents on how they can help Ashfield stay a clean and pleasant place to live.
We want the residents of Ashfield to take pride in their communities and local community groups, businesses and schools are being encouraged to organise litter picks in parks, open spaces and litter hot spots.”
