Reverse Street Cleansing Cuts

We the undersigned petition the council to reverse the decision to cut street sweeping services and to retain the employment of properly trained street sweepers.

The proposed cuts in street cleaning will mean most residential streets will only be cleaned once a week (previously three times a week) and a reduced service on other streets including limits on weekend work. The ending of the seasonal leaf service will result in hazardous conditions for pedestrians as leaves rot and will open the council to compensation claims for injuries. Cuts in street cleaning will coincide with the introduction of fortnightly residual rubbish collections creating potential health and safety problems caused by excess litter.
