Residents demonstrated their enthusiasm for supporting the spring clean by acting on notes put through their front doors, encouraging them to clear their unwanted rubbish and any stored items that they no longer required.

The team cleared the household litter from the footways and front driveways of the houses. One resident commented that she had placed a single mattresses outside her house, only to find they had quadrupled overnight.

With financially hard times for many and no means to transport items to the Community Recycling Centre at Charlton Lane, residents were extremely grateful to be given the opportunity to clear out their homes and gardens, thanking the Council for its concerns and welfare.

Cllr Richard Barratt, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Compliance, commented:

"I would like to give my thanks to residents for supporting the Stanwell Street Clean. Your efforts to clear out your unwanted rubbish made it worthwhile Spelthorne Council organising the two street clean days and co-ordinating the removal and disposal of items."

Cllr Barratt continued:

"I would also like to thank the Spelthorne Law Enforcement and Streetscene Officers for all their hard work and the effort involved in clearing over 15 tonnes of unwanted items to improve the area for those living in and around Viola Avenue."
