City of Wolverhampton Council is working with All Saints Action Network (ASAN) to carry out a 'Day of Action' to clean up Wolverhampton's All Saints area.

The City Council and ASAN have teamed up to tackle a wide range of issues including waste, highway and community concerns.

The Day of Action will include a deep clean of targeted streets, repairing street signage, redundant street poles and gulley cleansing as well as carrying out general maintenance and logging future improvement works.

Council officers will also be talking to residents on how to keep their street neat, speaking about fly tipping issues, what can and cannot go in their bins, how to report issues and informing residents on council services that are available to them.

The City Council and ASAN are calling for volunteers to take part in the deep clean during the 'Day of Action' to encourage residents help improve their community and take pride in keeping their street neat.

Councillor Steve Evans, Cabinet Member for City Environment at City of Wolverhampton Council said: "As a council we have a duty to keep our city clear from waste, but we can only do so much.

"Our street cleansing teams spend their time cleaning up our streets, only for them to be returned to the same state a few days later.

"At a time when the council needs to cut budgets by £40-£50 million potentially over the next 5 years, we need to pull together to reduce unnecessary expenditure and reduce the litter on our streets.

"I'm pleased to hear the local ward councillors taking part in the clean up and continuing to build relationships with the All Saints community.

"I strongly encourage residents to get involved in the community clean up to take pride in their area to help keep the City of Wolverhampton a clean and attractive place to live, work and visit."

Shobha Asar-Paul Chief Officer at ASAN said: "We have a lot of pride in our area of All Saints and this joint effort between the City Council and ourselves will help to reduce the area of litter and waste and make the streets pleasant for everyone.

"We hope people will come and join in to make a positive impact and smarten up the area in time for spring."

Volunteers are asked to put on their gloves and meet the team at All Saints Action Network at 10am to collect their clean up equipment.
