ISM Support Storm Ciara Flood Clean Up

Storm Ciara Hits Ramsbottom on the 9th February 2020

Storm Ciara swept across the UK on Sunday 9th February, with heavy rain and winds of over 90 mph causing widespread flooding and major transport disruption.

The recent storm Ciera hit Ramsbottom causing flooding throughout the local area, including Nuttal Park and Kenyon Street.

About 150 properties throughout Greater Manchester are believed to have been flooded during Storm Ciara earlier in February.

Bury took the brunt of the damage, with residents in Radcliffe and Redvales evacuated from homes, and homes also being flooded in Ramsbottom.

The post-flood clean up continued last week at Nuttal Park in Ramsbottom as The Ramsbottom Litter Picking Group and other local volunteers collected over fifty bin bags worth of rubbish.

Litter Picking

ISM Waste & Recycling teamed up with the Ramsbottom Litter Picking group once again donating a skip to the group free of charge to help with the clear up.

Volunteers from local litter picking groups throughout Bury joined forces on Saturday 22nd February 2020 for a clean-up operation after the recent floods.

A group of 29 volunteers helped with the rubbish clear up and managed to clear more than 50 bin bags of waste that was left behind after Strom Ciera hit, and the River Irwell burst its banks earlier in the month.

Groups represented included Ramsbottom Litter Picking Group, Tottington Litter Pickers and Ramsbottom Running Club.

The group collected a wheelbarrow full of mesh fencing, over 50 bin bags of plastic waste and other rubbish including a packet of bourbon biscuits from 2010, a live crayfish, wooden pallets, a shopping trolley and a washing machine drum.
