I first appeared in the Sheffield star back in November 2015, requesting the help of the community to remove litter and stop fly tipping. I appeared where the Best one car park meets the footpath. A group of us cleared it the first time, but the shop don’t keep on top of it very well and litter soon accumulates again. I am told that Rotherham council won’t clear private land, but today there are two Streetpride lorries and workmen clearing the car park of rubbish.
As for the Footpath where the tragic incident happened this week. I have been trying to get Streetpride and the footpaths people to clear for 6 weeks. I think it was done Friday when I went down to check, after 3/4 failed attempts to do it. I wasn’t impressed and didn’t take a picture. I used to clear this footpath on my own, but stopped after the very few of the public came forward to help me reduce litter.
All the best
