Slough brightens borough's bins

Slough Borough Council is raising awareness of its street cleaning services by brightly painting its equipment.

Street cleaners are using bright green bins for recyclable litter and orange bins for general waste. The frames of the barrows are yellow.

‘With any service there is a perception issue - if people don't see it happening then they presume it isn't happening.

With these new barrows, no one can claim they haven't seen a street cleaner in Slough,' said a spokesman.

The unusual move comes following council research in which residents flagged up the environment as an issue of high importance.
