Halfords Hereford Rubbish Responsibility

Recommended Posts

This is Halfords rubbish on the Spur Retail Park that has AGAIN blown all across the car park and onto Perseverance Road.

There is one odd cage which is open with cardboard in from Hobby Craft next door but 99% of this rubbish belongs to Halfords. We have seen this many times and nothing is ever done about it.

Halfords really do need to be aware of their surrounding area and neighbours and secure their waste cardboard and rubbish more securely in a compound. 

We are aware that environmental services have spoken with them in the past but this is the total mess evident again today.

The Hereford Community Clean Up Group only cleaned around this area a few weeks ago, come on Halfords you can do better than this! You have a responsibility to keep your immediate surrounding area clean, we will speak with the store manager today and highlight this issue.

All this rubbish has again blown down across the car parks and onto Perseverance Road.

This is the goods entrance next door at Dunelm, look how clean and tidy their premises are in comparison, this is because they secure their waste products.

We have spoken with the store this morning and they are pleased that we have highlighted this issue and we have been reliably informed that Halfords have received quotes for up to £12,000 and are more than happy to pay to have a secure compound for their rubbish but the landlords of the Spur Retail Park are refusing to allow them.

So in fairness to Halfords they have their hands tied here, although in the absence of a secure compound, Halfords Hereford are still responsible for the rubbish that is being blown across the neighbouring area and roads, this must be a priority.

So because the landlords will not allow Halfords to build a bin compound the store still need to keep the area around them clean, this is a reasonable excuse but not a total excuse, clean it up.

I have seen people rummaging through these bins and the ones in the car park of Herefordshire gas services over the years.

Halfords still have a duty to keep the area around their store clean regardless

I was at the Spur retail park yesterday and Halfords area has been cleaned up, lets hope that they keep it looking as good as it did this week

Good to see Halfords have kept their area clean, we were at the retail park yesterday and a much bigger improvement. 

It is good to see I agree Colin but it shouldn't take a post on Hereford Voice to encourage Halfords to clean up their space, this should be automatic and a priority
