Show Rubbish the Red Card

Playing fields and parks are focal points within communities and are used by lots of people for a variety of reasons. As events are often staged in these public spaces however, littering and rubbish becomes a problem for those that use them afterwards. The issue of littering is one which has been around for a long time and doesn’t seem to be going away. Littering shows a complete lack of consideration for other people, and local councils are keen to keep their public spaces clean.

Keep it Clean
In Blackpool, councillors have requested that local football teams using playing fields clean up after they have finished playing, as empty drinks bottles are often left behind. It has been suggested that the team takes black bin liners with them and perform routine walks along the touch lines after the matches have finished collecting rubbish as they go. With such a large number of people it is difficult to keep track of who is disposing of their rubbish properly, so carrying out a large sweep of the area would certainly help to cut down on the amount that is left behind.

Pitch Invasion
The clubs have responded claiming that they do not leave any rubbish behind when they leave the fields. They also say that the team’s managers regularly have to clean up before the match due to the broken glass bottles and sharp cans strewn across the pitches. This is of course extremely dangerous for players as any cuts they sustain could lead to a trip to the hospital! Litter isn’t just a matter of tidiness; it can also be unsafe for children, animals and those unaware.

Respect
As these public places are shared by everybody, each with a different use, it’s important that we consider our neighbours’ needs and respect their right to a safe and clean environment. Whether we are playing football, walking dogs or sitting out for a picnic cleaning up after ourselves should be an automatic action. If fairs or outdoor events are being held then a cleanup becomes a much more difficult task. Outside help from specialist companies such as ourselves is a sensible option to make sure all waste is cleared thoroughly and effectively.

I needed my garage cleaning and found these guys on the internet. It was a great service from beginning to end. Tom who answered the phone was very polite and accommodating to my needs. I work shifts so I explained to Tom that it needed the rubbish collecting after 11 and before 1 due to my shift and sleep patterns! We arranged a time off 11.30, the lads who did the job turned up on time as agreed and were polite. They were real hard workers and cleared the garage in no time at all. All in it was a really professional and efficient service. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Highly recommended. Having been let down by Veolia, who wouldn’t pick up the rubbish, supposedly because of access to my property, I was delighted that it was no problem for this company. Tom very trustworthy and straightforward on the phone. They did exactly what they said they would do and for a very fair price too.

These guys were brilliant. They were very fast and efficient at replying to my initial query, quoting and carrying out the job (garage clear out ready for house move). I can’t really say if their prices are comparable to others as I’ve not used a company for this before but I thought they were reasonable.

Had these guys clear an outbuilding and despite them charging per hour, they were like machines and got the job done in no time! Cheaper than we have had previously - by a marginal amount granted, but their service was far superior, so all in all very competitive! Turned up exactly when arranged, extremely pleased with them and would DEFINITELY use again!!

Excellent service, quick and efficient nothing was too much trouble. Arrived on time professional and courteous. This was a house clearance after our tenant left the property in a disgusting state, the guys cleared everything saved us time in getting the property back on the market and money and effort in having a skip. Great job highly recommend.

I had no trouble booking a slot when I needed and the guys turned up exactly on time. They were cheerful, friendly, speedy and belpful. So much better than hiring a skip. Everything was gone within fifteen minutes. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend.

Great experience with these guys. They came and cleared a load of rubble from my garden. The two lads who came were very polite and friendly, they cleared the rubble in very little time and I am very impressed with the job they've done.It was slightly more expensive than hiring a skip, but so much less hassle! Plus if I'd hired a skip I'd have had to do all the lifting and moving myself! Definitely worth the money, I will definitely use again and I would recommend to anybody.

Really impressed with the service I received today. The guys were polite, friendly and efficient and cleared everything really quickly, despite the heat. I now have a garden I can enjoy for the rest of the summer. I would highly recommend this company - far less trouble than hiring a skip and very good value for money.

Brilliant guys who came to clear up the bungalow of an elderly relative with dementia who had been a hoarder all her life. They worked quickly and were very polite. We used them 2 weeks running because of the amount of rubbish. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would use again in the future.

Great company, great experience from start to finish Helen taking the call for me and having to change the date at last minute, they did not mind. Lads on time Rob and Trev did a brilliant job they deserve a bonus for all their hard work. Definitely, use this company if you need their services.

This is the second time I have used them. Arrived promptly and they cleared my garage in about 10 minutes. Both guys were very friendly and did all the work. Much easier than trying to deal with a skip. Will certainly use them again when I fill the garage up with more junk.
