As we move into the cooler months, we’re looking back and highlighting the efforts made during Q1 to keep the Glosderry City Improvement District a safe and clean place to live, work and visit. At this time, we also start preparing for winter with all the necessary maintenance to public space, and we ask you to take care of your property and business by doing the same. Lastly, we offer our safety tips for your wheelie bin, which can become a security hazard, especially as our daylight hours decrease.

Looking back at Q1

For Quarter One 2024, we focused on maintaining a safe environment through our security initiatives, which include ensuring bin-pickers and loiterers are monitored and dealt with.  Additionally, the Glosderry City Improvement District’s cleanliness was a priority, with our cleaning services ensuring a well-maintained space through initiatives such as emptying public bins on time and cleaning public gutters when needed. You can learn more about what we accomplished this quarter below.

On the ground report from our CID manager

In a stunning development, the once mundane and lacklustre Garfield Parking lot has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of a dedicated team, the unassuming parking area has been elevated to new heights.

At the onset of March, a dynamic duo – affectionately known as the Mes and Green Team – took charge. Their mission? To breath life into the neglected Garfield Parking.

Here’s what they achieved:

Straightening Poles: The Team meticulously straightened poles that had long stood askew, ensuring a uniform and professional appearance.
Grass-Cutting: Armed with determination and lawnmowers, they tackled overgrown grass patches. The result? A pristine, well-manicured landscape.
Leaf Removal: The fallen leaves were no match for the team’s dedication. They swept away the debris, revealing the true potential of Garfield Parking.

In summary, Garfield Parking has shed its former self, emerging as a beacon of urban renewal. It’s a testament to community pride and collective vision.

wheelie bin safety + how to replace your wheelie bin

Wheelie Bin Safety

Learn how to keep your wheelie bin and property safe, or replace a lost bin, with these helpful tips.

Keeping your wheelie bin secure benefits both you and the community. Clearly marking your bin with your house number or address increases the chances of its safe return if it gets misplaced. But security goes beyond just the bin itself. To ensure your overall safety, be mindful of what you throw away. Avoid discarding medication bottles with your name or address visible. Shred any personal documents before disposal to prevent identity theft.

Bin placement also plays a role in security. Leaving your wheelie bin too close to walls or fences creates a potential climbing aid for trespassers. Ideally, store your bin in a designated area, like a garage or shed, whenever possible. If not, position it in a well-lit, open area away from fences and walls. By following these simple tips, you can keep your wheelie bin secure and reduce potential security risks around your property.
