Clean Green team set to sweep through Templar Road Estate

Published: Tuesday, 21st June 2016

From 20 June through to 1 July Oxford City Council’s Clean Green team will be sweeping through the Templar Road Estate.

The area, to the north of the city, is the first to feel the benefit of a targeted effort aimed at continuing the good works started in the Cleaner Greener campaigns and by residents and tenants, not just at cleaning, but also tackling environmental issues through education and enforcement.

Cllr John Tanner, Board Member for a Clean and Green Oxford, said: “The City Council is determined to make Oxford a clean and green place for everyone by focusing at each area of the city.  

“Residents on the Templar Road estate are doing a lot by not dropping litter, recycling their rubbish and cleaning up after their dogs. But we all need to do more. We must recycle more, not drop chewing gum and cigarette ends, and report anyone who lets their dog foul a public area.”

The two week campaign kicks off with a waste and recycling event in front of the Kendall Crescent shops on 20 June. Accompanying the cleaning team will be recycling staff who will visit residents to offer recycling tips and answer questions along with Community Response, Tenancy Sustainment and Tenancy Management teams.
