Community group in Swindon for alleyway clean-up

A community group in Wiltshire is helping to clear up one of the county's towns.

Swindon Back Garden was set up by residents to clear fly-tipped rubbish in privately-owned alleys in Eastcott.

The large majority of back alleyways in Swindon are designated as public highways and will be cleared by the council of fly-tipping.

But with privately-owned alleys, the council will offer advice to residents, and collect all the rubbish they clear.

Saturday's clear-up operation is focused on the alleyway at the rear of Cross Street.

The council will do a hazardous items sweep beforehand and also provide bags for the waste.
