Clean Green campaign comes to Rose Hill

Published: Monday, 27th February 2017

Between 6 March and 17 March, the Rose Hill area of Oxford will be the focus of the next Clean Green Oxford campaign.

The initiative will see Oxford City Council concentrate its resources in the area, following on from the good work carried out the weekend before by the volunteers of the annual OXCLEAN 2017 Spring Clean event.

Rose Hill will benefit from a targeted effort from the Council. As well as cleansing, this will include talking to residents and tenants to find out what they think the main environmental issues are in the area. The campaign will also tackle issues through education and enforcement that will cover recycling, litter, bulky waste, dog mess, and graffiti.

Cllr John Tanner, Board Member for a Clean and Green Oxford, said: “Rose Hill is the latest area set to benefit from a determined campaign that will go above and beyond normal cleaning operations. By targeting our resources, and getting the community involved, we can make a real improvement to the quality of life of those who live there.”

“Most residents take care of their environment and want to keep it spick and span. Only a thoughtless few drop litter, allow their dogs to foul the area, and fly tip rubbish. But targeted clean-ups like this, organised by the City Council, will help return areas to a condition that residents can be proud of.       

“This is our first clean-up campaign of 2017 and it follows last year’s successful events on the Templar Road estate and at Barton. And there will be further clean up campaigns later this year.”

The campaign launch is set for 10.30am on 6 March at Rose Hill Community Centre.
