Annual Leaf Clearance Programme begins…

LSSL’s annual leaf clearance programme has now begun.

The programme started early October and will run through until January 2023. Leaf fall is collected at three different sites – Walton Hall Park in the north of the city, Clarkes Garden in the south of the city and Newton Road for central areas. The team are expecting to collect around 1,200 tonnes of leaf fall over the course of the programme! Below shows some of the initial clearance on Speke Boulevard.

Leaf clearance over winter is carried out using various machinery from leaf blowers, compact vehicles, 7.5 tonne merlin sweepers and Trilo Vacuum Vehicles.

The pictures below show leaf clearance operations that have been carried out already by our teams on Dudlow Lane (top) and Muirhead Avenue (bottom).
