Random Acts of Cleanliness: Wilberforce Road Car Park

Overflowing waste bin Cleaned up / tidy waste bin

It just takes a little care and attention to keep our area looking nice, but without it, things go downhill fast.

It seems that Folkestone and Hythe District Council / Veolia haven't emptied or cleaned up around the bin in Wilberforce Road Car Park in Sandgate for weeks and weeks, and it really showed. It was pretty disgusting!

I took a little time on Sunday to clean up around the bin and remove at least a little of the waste from the overflowing bin itself, and it's looking much better. I've also reported the bin as unemptied to Folkestone and Hythe Council and asked them to do so again regularly in future, and now I've dealt with the worst for them to keep it tidy in future.

It only took a few minutes of work, but as the before and after pictures show makes SO much difference. Quite how our District Council has "forgotten" to empty a bin in its own car park for so long I don't know!

Know any other "Grot Spots" locally that need sorting? I'll help if I can - tell Tim at tim@folkestone-hythelibdems.org.uk
