Havering Council says that cleaning campaign has had real impact on borough
Havering Council says that feedback shows its cleaning campaign is having a real impact around the borough.
Cleaner Havering has seen a range of measures carried out.
As part of the project, around 30 volunteers, along with council staff and others, gathered in Elm Park to improve the town centre.
Over 300 bags of rubbish and leaves were collected, and Helen Tompkins, a resident of Elm Park since 1937, said: “It was fantastic to see The Broadway being transformed to its former glory.”
The project will cost the council around �250,000 and was launched in August at the Havering Show.

Along with an investment in extra brooms, gloves and other common equipment, the council has also bought 16 new vacuums, to pick up broken glass and other substances.
