Cllr Syed Ghani, cabinet member for public realm, said: “Clean and tidy streets are a top priority. Our frontline street cleansing staff have been working harder than ever to keep the borough at its best during these difficult times.

“We’ve invested in this equipment as a show of our ongoing commitment to keeping the borough clean.”

He added people can help by making sure they put items in the right bins and use them in streets and parks, or take their trash home.

Kitchen appliances can be disposed of by using a free white goods collection service, visiting the Frizlands Lane tip or ordering a bulky waste collection.
