Crosspool Community Litter Picker picks up loads of rubbish.
To help ensure that our neighbourhood remains healthy and clean, volunteer Crosspool Community Litter Pickers, encouraged by the Sheffield council had, until the governments March lock down/ social distancing directive, regularly come together in the Crosspool Shopping Precinct on the first Saturday in the month, to remove discarded waste from our streets and open spaces.
While some of us may have taken our exercise with the odd walk or bike ride during the Corvid19 Pandemic, one local volunteer Litter Picker went that extra mile, singularly collecting 40 large bags of litter for disposal by the Sheffield cleansing department.
Among the booty of rubbish collected from the Tapton and King Edward lower school fields, shrubberies and undergrowth; were bottles, sweet and crisp packets, broken tennis rackets and umbrellas, discarded school clothing, asthma inhalers, dozens of tennis and golf balls and disappointingly only 17p in coins (donated to charity).
We can only hope that in the interest of everyone’s health and welfare, this volunteer’s tremendous efforts were not in vain and the school grounds remain waste and litter free.
A “Big Thank You” to this local volunteer for their much appreciated hard work.
During Covid-19 more people are at home than usual, either working, home-schooling or self-isolating. The Sheffield City Council are strongly discouraging bonfires of any type during this period, as it can significantly impact on people’s health and enjoyment of their property.
If Sheffield City Council gather evidence of bonfires that are causing a nuisance to neighbouring properties they will take enforcement action that could lead to a fine or prosecution under criminal law.
Sheffield City council waste collection services are currently operating as normal, including garden waste with new registrations to the green bins still available, so there is no reason for anyone to be burning waste.
To show solidarity that we are all behind the Veolia refuse staff and more importantly help raise their morale during the Coronavirus outbreak. Can we encourage households to place this small rainbow sticker on their bins? Please!
All waste and recycling services are currently operating as normal.
However, If and when a reduction in the workforce means all waste services cannot be provided, black bin and clinical waste collections will be prioritised.
Waste and recycling collection dates over the Christmas Period
Before you put your black, blue and brown bins out over Christmas, check what day Veolia will be coming to empty them – as it might be different over the festive period.
Extra Waste and Recycling
Over the festive period, it is likely that you will produce lots of extra waste, including wrapping paper, Christmas cards, boxes, catalogues, glass and plastic bottles, biscuit/chocolate tins and lots more.
You can place small amounts of extra paper and card, tied in a bundle no bigger than your bin, next to your blue bin for collection.
Between 27th December and 23rd January ONLY they will collect extra tins, cans, and plastic bottles. Just put them inside a tied carrier bag next to your brown bin.
Any glass bottles or jars must be placed inside your brown bin; otherwise, your extra recycling will not be collected.
