    Can we get the roadside at both sides from Clayton west right up to Bretton roadabout cleared of rubbish that has either been thrown out of cars or blown into the curbs trees at the side of the road. It’s un sightly and needs to be cleared. There’s plastics cans and also plastic items stuck in trees and layed right along the paths as I say from Clayton West right up to Bretton roadabout?

  • Volunteers will also be doing a spring clean in Newsome on Saturday 3rd March between 2pm and 4pm, between Close Hill Lane and Towngate.

  • Any chance of getting a group together to pick up litter on the Greenway, especially around the Heckmondwike area. I’m sure the residents around Norristhorpe would happily partake.

  • What about the state of the Ringway in Heckmondwike there are whole sofas which have been thrown over the fence. When will something be done to actually stop the flytipping. Simple enough with cameras and higher fences
