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!!
