A huge rubbish clear up is underway today as colleagues from a supermarket giant strive to spruce up the streets around Wembley.

Store workers at ASDA in Forty Lane, have joined forces with some local councillors and Brent Police to organise the big litter pick around the Chalkhill area.

Tracey Henry, a community champion colleague at ASDA, said they had seen “the best turnout we’ve ever had,” with over forty employees pitching in.

She said: “We want to make a difference to the local community and show our customers that we are supporting them and their environment.”

She has been joined by Nathan Newark, store manager and Andrew Holmes, regional manager who have been working since the early hours to clear the streets of rubbish.

Mayor of Brent Cllr Michael Adeyeye also came to help support the cause along with Brent Council leader, Cllr Muhammed Butt alongside Cllr Michael Pavey, Cllr Shafique Choudhary and Cllr Reg Colwill.

Cllr Pavey, a Barnhill ward councillor, where the store is located, said: “I’m staring at twenty bags of rubbish right now but I’m having a great time,”

“The day is going really well.”

The Wembley clear up is part of a larger week long ASDA project to clean up the streets, with over 600 employees helping out at their regional stores.

The clean up will last until 4pm.
