Sandyford gets the “Respect” it deserves

A day of action to put some respect back into Sandyford is to take place on Monday 12th December.

The aim of the day is to make the area around Ridge Road to be a cleaner and safer place for everyone to live, work and play.

Respect Action is all about working together. The council, Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire & Rescue, voluntary groups including S.A.G.E. McDonald’s, local residents and other organisations are all working to make things better for your local area.

A free skip service is available for every resident to use and giving them the opportunity to help make the local area tidier. Free skips are available from between 9.00 a.m. & 2.00 p.m. and will be located in Sandy Road, Ridge Road, Russell Road, Russell Place and Wignall Road.

Most important – it is residents responsibility to take waste to the skips and to load it themselves. Anyone caught leaving waste in alleyways or on the pavements could be fined. On the day Environmental Crime officers will be working in the area.

Items not accepted in the skips are – Asbestos, Gas cylinders/bottles, Car batteries, Any electrical items, TVs or IT equipment, Paint tins, Large amounts of rubble, Fluorescent tubes, Fridges/freezers, Tyres, Washers/dryers or Toxic chemical containers.
