Salford’s fleet of street cleaners have introduced two new vehicles to aid the cleaning process.
Salix Homes, for central Salford, has brought in a new road sweeper and a fly tipping van to help clean the area.
The two vehicles will be added to the team of 42 street cleaners provided by the council’s environmental services.
They will act as a rapid response team for central Salford and will be sent out as and when needed to deal with any concerns from residents about fly-tipping or litter in their neighbourhoods.
The street cleaners are part of Salix Homes’ Better Neighbourhoods programme, who is working to transform neighbourhoods by making them cleaner, greener and safer.
The head of better neighbourhoods for Salix Homes, said: ‘As well as providing housing services, we play a wider role in developing neighbourhoods and these cleaners are an example of the different types of work we’re doing with partners to continuously improve services for local people.’
Cllr Keith Mann added: ‘These new vehicles are additional to the council’s street cleaning service and will be used when required to respond to any issues from people living areas managed by Salix Homes.’
