Hounslow Highways clears 100 bags of rubbish from woodland

The clearing of vegetation was carried out by Hounslow Highways’ grounds maintenance contractors and eight office-based staff cleared the rubbish in about three hours. The majority of the litter was empty alcohol cans and bottles, among other things such as cardboard boxes and fast food wrappers.

The clean-up was part of a joint Anti-social Behaviour Campaign between the Metropolitan Police, Hounslow Council, Hounslow Homes, John Laing Integrated Services and Hounslow Highways.The 13-week campaign was launched on 1 July 2013 to crackdown on anti-social behaviour such as littering, graffiti, street prostitution and drug abuse in Hounslow.

Cllr Colin Ellar, Deputy Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “We are determined to make our borough a cleaner, tidier place, and it’s good to see Hounslow Highways taking action to support the summer anti-social behaviour campaign. Most of the rubbish collected was empty bottles and cans, which reinforces the need to tackle street drinking, and we will hopefully see a reduction in this type of litter as part of the borough-wide controlled drinking zone that came into force earlier this month.”

Hounslow Highways Community Environment Manager Lorraine Srivastav said: “Hounslow Highways will be working with the council’s community safety department to address the particular issues at this site. It is important to locate anti-social behavior hotspots so our partnering organisations can tackle these issues accordingly.”

The Community Environment Team runs regular clean-up days throughout the borough and encourages residents to alert them to litter hotspots. Residents can also volunteer to help with clean-ups or host their own clean-up day with the support of Hounslow Highways.
