Trafford Council's Environmental Improvement team have been nominated for another top award.
The team, based at Trafford Town Hall and led by Principal Manager Mark Dale, have been selected as a finalist in the APSE Service Awards 2019.
They have been shortlisted in the Best Community & Neighbourhood initiative for their Conscience Project. It was set up to tackle littering and public urination in public passageways before Manchester United football matches at Old Trafford. The aim of the Project was to appeal to the conscience of fans visiting the area by highlighting that their behaviour has a direct impact on people who live close to the stadium.
In July, the Environmental Improvement team won a top award from Keep Britain Tidy for the highly successful Conscience Project.
Cllr Stephen Adshead, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Environment, Air Quality and Climate Change said:
Trafford Council’s Environmental Improvement team work very hard making Trafford a cleaner and greener borough for everyone to enjoy. The team has won a number of awards in the past and we are very proud of all the work they do.
The Conscience Project was hugely successful in tackling major littering issues and problems with public urination in the areas around Manchester United’s ground. The team has rightly received praise for this wonderful project.”
The APSE awards recognise the very best in local government frontline services across the UK. The presentation evening will be held at the end of APSE's annual seminar 2019 which will take place in Newcastle on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 September.
