  • I gave that feedback to a political responsible from city council of labour party in the last election and her excuse was that the crew cannot clean properly because there are cars on streets. Please, that could not be an excuse to don't clean the streets, just make an effort and clean edges properly, use the right tools like broom or more advanced like electrical air blow and broom trucks but please keep the streets of oxford clean. Also, the field next to freelands rd is dirty too but not only bottles but I have found 2 needles already and a vapour thingy, please you be proactive and come and visits the streets of oxford and make then safe for pedestrian and bikes, properly clean and nice parks for our children and for the people in general.

  • The street looks dirty, i don't know what does it mean "cleared" but all the street, all along is still dirty with lot of soil and vegetation also bottle and cans on edges between pavement and drive way. I cannot see that anything happened this days.

  • I forgot to say that there are also covid masks on pavement. So, the street is dirty as it was last week, nothing changed. If some crew have come to freelands road, they did nothing. Very disappointing and happy to report and escalate this to the competent department.

  • I have passed this back to the supervisors so they can speak to the crew that attended, they will also come and inspect the area. I will update the report after.

  • HI, I realised one truck has come and pass in my area, Freelands road, Arnold road etc. Thanks a lot for that but I have to provide some feedback here. What the machine has done is basically scrap some dust (soil and pebbles) and move them from the edge of driveway/pavement to 1 meter ahead. In my modest opinion, the to clean years and years of no cleaning should be manually with shovels, brooms and pots in order to remove all those dirt and not move them around. thanks and I hope you could fi the problem properly the next time.
