Bin It - Don't Burn It

The council is keen to prevent the build up of combustible material - and warning that anything that looks like a fire hazard will be removed.

The drive to clear the streets is part of the Good Guy Campaign - involving the council and Community Safety partner agencies including Merseyside Police and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service. Known anti-social behaviour and fire locations are being targeted and residents urged to act sensibly and help prevent the burning of street bonfires.

Councillor Sue Murphy, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, Safer Communities and Youth said: "The Good Guy campaign has had a positive response so far, but it's important that we all act sensibly as bonfire night approaches. People asking for items to burn should be refused - and the build up of any potential bonfires reported immediately."
