Roads in and out of Lichfield are getting a spring clean.
Street cleaners from Lichfield District Council have begun the job of clearing away all the rubbish that has ended up on the central reservations of main roads in the area.
Central reservations getting a clean-up include the A5, A5148 and A38.
Councillor Louise Flowith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Operational Services, said:
“These busy roads are a gateway for people coming into and out of the district, and seeing a central reservation strewn with litter gives a bad and wrong impression of the district. This is why we have been so keen to litter pick the area and have been working hard to make sure it happens.
“We would like to thank the Highways Agency contractor, Amey, for allowing us onto the central reservations, and hope they will continue to support our efforts to make the district clean and tidy for everyone.
“However, we can’t do it alone, and need everyone to take responsibility for their rubbish, making sure they dispose of it properly wherever they may be.”
