New vans to clean up streets

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

SOUTH Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil (SBDC) has wel­comed a new fleet of small vans and sweep­ers to keep our streets clean.

They have re­placed the old ve­hi­cles which had been in ser­vice for nearly a decade and were re­placed af­ter they were deemed un­ecomon­i­cal to re­pair.

The new fleet of small vans is fit­ted with the lat­est en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly en­gines and sweep­ing tech­nol­ogy with im­proved suc­tion on the sweep­ers.

South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil­lor Luisa Sul­li­van, port­fo­lio holder for the en­vi­ron­ment, said: “Mak­ing the dis­trict a clean and en­joy­able place to live is al­ways a top pri­or­ity for the Coun­cil and al­though our street clean­ing teams do a re­ally ex­cel­lent job we’re al­ways look­ing for ways to im­prove the ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness of the ser­vice.

“The new ve­hi­cles will be more ef­fi­cient and new fea­tures on the sweep­ers will help us to keep the dis­trict clean.

“Most of the new fleet are al­ready out and about mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the dis­trict, with two more join­ing them shortly.

“Of course the sim­plest way to re­duce the amount of lit­ter in our area is not to drop it in the first place and we urge res­i­dents and visi­tors to use one of the hun­dreds of lit­ter bins sit­u­ated across the dis­trict or to take their lit­ter home with them.”
