Local authorities in Chorley, Lancashire, have announced an extra investment in the town’s Contract Cleaning Services.
Chorley Council is investing an extra £60,000 on street cleaning to provide extra contract cleaning staff to improve hygiene levels, reports the Chorley Citizen.
Three new members of staff have been recruited to help clean local streets using mini sweepers and brooms.
The extra staff will complement existing mechanised cleaning techniques, which have been found to be ineffective when roads are obstructed by parked cars.
Councillor Peter Goldsworthy, leader of Chorley Council, said: “Under the new system that has started this week an extra person will walk ahead of the sweeper and drag out bits of litter from the path or by parked cars so the whole street gets cleaned properly.”
Councillor Eric Bell, Chorley Council’s executive member, added that now the council has increased its investment in cleaning, local residents have to play their own part by not dropping litter in the first place.
Under the new system, residential roads swept by the mini sweepers will be thoroughly cleaned at least once every ten weeks.
