Extra Amblecote Clean up

Posted: May 3, 2021 by tidystourbridge in Litter

We had an excellent litter pick around the large flats in Trinity Road on Saturday and cleared a tremendous amount of rubbish. Managing to clear so much rubbish was also due to the help Amblecote Labour had from Wollaston Labour Party Members and Tidy Stourbridge.

Most to the mess was around the back of the last block in Trinity Road.

Our team of 9 were; Doug, Ellie, Adam, Rachael, Ellen, Chris, Rachel, Nigel and Roger managing to pick over 16 bags of rubbish, a large builders bag of waste, 2 mattresses, a carpet and a load of wood. It was good to hear a lot of thanks from residents seeing all this rubbish that we collected.

Mcdonalds, KFC & Greggs Litter

Posted: September 30, 2020 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The sun was out yet again on Sunday 27th September but there was a chill in the air. Rachael, Tony, Ivor, Alison, Kevin & Gary collected endless cups and wrappers from the fast food outlets above all around The Mill Race Lane area.

It appears that none of these outlets are keeping the locality clean enough along with London & Cambridge Properties who own a lot of properties on this site.

Don’t even start us on face masks!!!

Thank you to Doug for the transportation of kit.
