Cleaning up the streets
12:36pm Sunday 1st September 2013 in News
The Braithwaite Blitz ended with 250 bags of rubbish collected from across the neighbourhood.
Residents and staff from local agencies spent a day picking up litter. They completed a clean-up that had begun earlier in the summer in the North Dean Road area of the Braithwaite and Guard House estate.
The Blitz involved several Bradford Council departments, police, landlord Incommuni-ties, Community Payback and councillors.
Councillor Jan Smithies, who represents Keighley West Ward, said: "They either provided staff or materials. We would have liked more residents, but we did have a fair number of them. We went litter picking in public areas.
"We identified where there had been major dumping and arranged for someone to pick it up. We found beds, sofas, a fridge, stool and tent."
