Pride in Brunswick

Brunswick Road clean up

Brunswick Road doesn’t get a lot of attention and the area has had problems with litter, dumping and fly-tipping. This month Sheffield Homes organised a special event to talk to tenants and residents about tackling the problem.

Sheffield Homes gave practical advice on keeping the area clean and tidy. “Ratty” also made a special appearance and spoke to young people about the types of rubbish that attracts rats to communal areas and inside people’s homes. Free cleaning kits were handed out and there were information stalls by Sheffield City Council's Environmental Services, South Yorkshire Fire Service and Veolia.

Over 50 tenants attended and provided feedback about Sheffield Homes' services. The issue of rubbish chutes in flats was also discussed during the day. Sheffield Homes are looking into the idea of having large outdoor bins for residents to use. A Spital Lane resident told the Messenger, “There’s been rubbish dumped on the landing in our block of flats every week. It’s disgusting. It’s good what Council are doing; it’s better for the children if it’s clean.”

Another resident said, “We’ve had problems with the rubbish chutes smelling. We are happy with the idea of bins outside.”
