A second Community Clean-Up in the Linlathen area of the city has taken place this week as part of the Take Pride in Dundee campaign.

The clean-up scheme is part of the city-wide environmental effort to make a positive difference to all of Dundee’s neighbourhoods, parks and open spaces.

The three-day initiative saw Council teams carry out additional works such as the removal of litter and debris, strimming near walkways, general tidying of communal areas where required as well as further sweeping to path and street areas.

Climate, Environment & Biodiversity Convener Cllr Heather Anderson said: “The Take Pride in Your City campaign is driving a lot of positive work throughout the city in many different ways, from litter picks to the now well-established Community Clean-Ups.

“The Community Clean-Ups have proven to be a successful addition and has seen Council staff work with the local residents to improve the condition and appearance of areas based on vital direct feedback received from the public.

“This collaborative approach is what makes Take Pride work, as we continue to target specific issues such as litter, dog fouling, fly-tipping, graffiti and discarded chewing gum in our shared public spaces.”

The Community Clean-Up initiative has taken place in several areas throughout the city, including previously in Linlathen, with further Clean-Ups planned for the future as well.

Information about upcoming Community Clean-Ups is communicated directly with residents in the areas prior to taking place.
