Sowerby Bridge Clean-Up Launches

A new anti-littering campaign is being launched today in one area of Calderdale.

Calderdale Council have teamed up with the Community Foundation to launch a new anti-littering campaign.

The Don’t Muck about campaign will launch today in Sowerby Bridge and will last four days.

The clean-up is the latest in a series of action days; Halifax, Elland, Todmorden and Brighouse have already received their visits by the campaign. It’s now time for Sowerby Bridge to get some of the action.

Activities will include removing graffiti, cutting back over grown vegetation, tackling problem parking, littering and fly tipping.

Teams will also be visiting businesses to conduct random food hygiene inspections, as well as checking licences and carrying out vehicle speed checks.

Daniel Sutherland from Calderdale Council said: “Focused clean ups on towns are well over-due. I think it’s the best way to really see transformational change in a town. I think the day to day activities help keep things up to a standard, But I think by going in, working with partners on a focused approach we can actually make a real difference that’s really noticeable to people as they drive through”.
