Street team hoping to clean up at national awards ceremony
The award-winning team responsible for keeping Dudley’s streets clean has been nominated for another national accolade.
Dudley Council’s street cleansing team is up for a gong at the Annual Performance Awards hosted by the Association of Public Service Excellence (APSE).
The team is in the running to win the Best Service Team of the Year in the Street Cleansing and Streetscene Service (Public Realm) category.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Grand Hotel in Blackpool on Friday night. (December 6th)
Kevin O’Keefe, chief executive, said:
I’m delighted to hear the team has been nominated for another national award.
They do a great job in all weathers keeping our streets clean and it is testament to their hard work all year round.
I wish them all the best of luck and hope they can bring another trophy back to Dudley as winners.
If the team is successful it will be the fourth time they have won the award, with previous victories at the APSE Awards in 2007, 2009 and 2010. They have been finalists every year since 2005.
The team also won a Keep Britain Tidy Award in 2016 and made the finals again this year.
