About your environment

We know our customers want to live in pleasant neighbourhoods which are clean and well maintained. 

We do a range of things to ensure your neighbourhood remains in tip top condition, including:

  • Providing a Community Maintenance team also known as Neighbourhoods Direct
  • Attending regular Wednesday Walkabouts in your area, where you can attend to have your say
  • Organising clean up campaigns with local communities
  • Working in partnership with other agencies e.g. the Council and Groundwork to keep your neighbourhood looking good; and
  • Taking action against tenants who have untidy gardens.

If you've spotted a problem in your neighbourhood please contact us to report it to one of Neighbourhood Community Advisors:  

Bury East - Mike Peake, Jane Straccia and Sam Abraham

Radcliffe - Clare Hunter, Chris Ryle, Lisa Booth and John Byrne

Bury West / North Manor - Ashleigh Hogan and Faye Tomlinson

Garden Scheme

If you're struggling with your garden, our Neighbourhoods Direct team can provide an reasonable priced service for all tenants. For more details, please click here.

Rubbish Removal Service

Similarly, if you're struggling to move any rubbish from your garden, the Neighbourhoods Direct team will remove these items at a reduced rate.

Recycling in Bury

Please note that the collection of waste is the responsibility of Bury Council's Waste Management Service.

Wednesday Walkabouts

We “walkabout” on Wednesdays across our neighbourhoods with tenants, councillors and anyone else who wants to be involved.

We have developed a ‘health check’ system to assess the look and feel of each neighbourhood to ensure our actions and investments are more focused in the future.

Wednesday Walkabout dates and locations are listed on our events page and we upload actions from the walkabouts here.
