New Bins for Walton Hall Park
PEOPLE who use Walton Hall Park are being encouraged to
make sure it is clean and litter free.
The park will receive 20 new and replacement park bins, which will be installed
in the New Year (2017).
This is part of a scheme which will see hundreds of new bins and replacement
bins located in parks and surrounding streets after the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe
Anderson, approved a capital programme for the scheme which will see ugly or
faulty bins being replaced as well as new bins installed.
The new bins will be placed in locations throughout the park where they are
needed most to help and address problems associated with cigarette stubs and dog
fouling as well as litter.
Deputy Mayor, Councillor Ann O'Byrne, said:- "There is never any excuse
for litter in our parks but we are making it easier for users to deposit their
rubbish. 1 of the things which deters people from using parks is when litter is strewn
over the paths and grass or dog owners have not cleared up after their pets.
We are playing our part in keeping Walton Hall Park tidy by providing extra bins
and I would appeal to those people who use it to make sure they keep the park
tidy and litter free."
