Cleaning For the Olympics

If you haven’t heard, Britain will be hosting the Olympic Games beginning at the end of this month and like every good host expecting guests; many cleaning teams have been busy ensuring the country is spic and span, ready for the world’s population to come over.

One team that is getting the country ready for one of the biggest events to come to Britain is P&G who have joined forces with the Mayor of London. Together they have launched a new campaign called Capital Clean Up, which aims to encourage volunteers to clean London before the capital plays host to the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games 2012.

The official London Olympic website has also been campaigning for volunteers to join them over the course of the event. Thousands of staff across the cleaning and waste sector has been called to apply for contractor roles to help keep the grounds of the Olympic Park clean, hygienic and safe.

Cleaning the Games is a critical role to play as organisers want to ensure that spectators and visitors have a positive experience and athletes can focus on getting that all important gold medal.

Finally Hounslow volunteers have been busy clearing up the borough in time for worldly visitors to touch down on British soil. Operation Clean Sweep has already begun and volunteers are doing their utmost to keep the A4 and A312 clean.

Councillor Ruth Cadbury, Hounslow’s lead member for the 2012 Olympics, said: “Thousands of people involved in the Games will pass through Hounslow, from athletes and officials to visitors from home and abroad, and we want them to see the borough at its best.

“As well as the main routes, we’re going to be doing more intensive cleaning in town centres, outside Tube and rail stations and on other local roads that may be used as ‘gateways’ to the Games.”

Impressing visitors is what the residents of Hounslow want to do and many are offering their litter picking services to ensure that first impression expectations are met.

Councillor Colin Ellar, Hounslow’s cabinet member for environment, added: “We have a street cleaning programme in place, but for an event of this scale, when the eyes of the world will be on us, we will try to make every effort that the borough is looking its best.”
