Love Clean Reading - In Redlands

During the Spring months Council teams will be out and about armed with brooms, brushes, dustcarts, graffiti cleaning equipment and hedgecutters, and converging on local streets for a concerted clean up. More than 130 streets across Reading will get this deep clean as part of a new initiative called ‘Love Clean Reading.’

Work will include street sweeping, verge edging, gulley emptying, weeding, tree pruning and clearing vegetation. A schedule of works detailing the streets and alleyways being targeted is listed below.  
Signs notifying residents that work in their neighbourhood is imminent will go up one week before the works start. Temporary parking suspensions will be necessary in some instances for the deep clean to take place.Once work is complete, residents and local businesses will then be sent a feedback form to get their views on how effective the work was.

A total of 23 streets have already been deep cleaned throughout January as part of the initial trial of the ’Love Clean Reading’ scheme. By the time the project is complete the total figure is expected to reach 134 streets. As always, scheduling is weather dependent and may be subject to change. 
The work being carried out by the Council as part of the Love Clean Reading initiative is in addition to the Council’s regular street cleaning and maintenance programme
