Bicester’s Bure Park is ending January on a high after a council clean-up removed waste equivalent to the weight of two elephants.
Cherwell District Council’s neighbourhood blitz campaign ran during the week beginning 22 January and saw a team of six council street cleansers remove litter, flytips and graffiti throughout the north Bicester area.
They picked 860kg of litter by hand, 7,520kg using mechanical sweepers and a further 880kg of unwanted items through the free bulky waste collections offered as part of the blitz. This totalled 9.26 tonnes.
