Tyre Clean Up

27 Jun 2014

Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team have once again been working hard on behalf of other agencies to clean up some of our beautiful countryside.

Yorkshire Water and Calderdale Council requested our assistance and technical expertise to remove an illegal deposit of tyres and other rubbish, which had been tipped and were blighting our moorland.

Initial estimates of 80 to 100 tyres were soon surpassed as the team set to work. An eventual haul of over 200 tyres and a van full of other debris was soon retrieved. It was a filthy job, with the dreaded midge ever present but the final result was worth the effort. If only such work was not necessary.

With the Calder Valley increasingly becoming a popular venue for TV and film makers and the pending high profile visit of the Tour De France, the team takes pride in contributing towards the maintenance of our unique environment.

This event was a continuation of our support of Calderdale Councils ‘Big Clean’ initiative.
