Partners clean up Mount Pellon Community

On Thursday 23 March, partners from Calderdale Councils Safer Cleaner Greener team, Community Wardens, West Yorkshire Fire Service and staff from the North & East Halifax Neighbourhoods team got together for a community Spring Clean around the streets of Mount Pellon.

Students from Leeds and Wakefield colleges studying public services also got involved with the clean up and accompanied West Yorkshire Fire Service as part of their work experience.

Arson information leaflets were handed out in the area to make residents aware of the risks of arson when bulky waste is left in close proximity to their properties as well as information on how any bulky waste can be removed.

In total, 15 large bin bags of litter were accumulated from the roads and streets in the area.
