Clearing up the Leys

Kids clear upThe August rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of Blackbird Leys residents who cleared up ten Oxford areas over three clean-up days.

Residents saw the clean-up days as a great chance to clear out their houses, gardens and sheds so they could dispose of unwanted items. Our army of dirt busters also cleared up gardens, paths and communal green spaces. In total they filled up nine ten square foot skips and three twenty foot skips.

Catalyst organised the clean-up days in partnership with GreenSquare (another landlord) so the whole community could work together to improve the look of their neighbourhoods and make them more welcoming.

The clean-up days also gave people the opportunity to meet other people living in their neighbourhoods and to speak to our teams.

If you would like to suggest a clean-up day in your area, please contact your neighbourhood manager.
