Clean up day sweeps through a Birkenhead street

A community clean up day has swept through a Birkenhead street, with public sector partners tackling fly tipping and delivering advice on health issues and energy efficiency.

Harrowby Road, Birkenhead has been identified as a fly tipping hotspot, with high levels of litter and anti social behaviour.

The road also falls under the selective licensing scheme, which raises housing standards by requiring private landlords to sign up to stringent measures to improve the living standards of their properties.

The clean up day saw Wirral Council's licensing, public health, recycling and environmental health teams join forces with Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue to clear up fly tipping and discuss ways to increase community resilience.

Birkenhead Constituency Team joined local councillors and Biffa in bringing 5 skips, clearing alleyways and speaking to householders about forming a residents' group.

Cllr George Davies, Chair of Birkenhead Constituency Committee said:- "Harrowby Road community day was a successful event involving police, healthy homes, fire service and environmental teams, amongst others. Residents got involved to get rid of litter and fly tipping in the alleyways. The road looked completely different afterwards and it's inspiring what can be done when we all work in partnership."

As well as tidying up the road, mini health checks were carried out with advice about managing blood pressure and smoking cessation.

Merseyside Police joined Wirral's anti social behaviour team to discuss residents' issues with low level crime and anti social behaviour, and Fire Service officers provided free smoke alarms and offered warm home packs.
