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."
