Recently Walsall Council's Street Pride team and Community Payback have also been out and about taking part in litter picking and general tidy up work in the community. Areas being covered include litter picking and removal of flytipping at Pelsall Nest Common, general tidy up at Barnes Lane Pool in Rushall and litter removal from several alleyways in the Area Partnership covering Pelsall, Rushall, Shelfield and Brownhills.
Councillor Anthony Harris, Walsall Council cabinet member for leisure, culture and environment, said: "It is important we all take responsibility for keeping our communities clean and tidy and these Sunday tidy ups are a great way for people to get involved.
"We know from listening to residents one of the things they often highlight as an issue is rubbish on our streets and parks. Walsall council is working hard to keep our environment clean and tidy and for the next few weeks we are asking residents to join and support us in this ongoing work."
Among those lending their support to the Big Tidy Up is Walsall Housing Group (whg)who will be holding a series of estate tours for their customers throughout June and July when residents can raise any concerns about their area.

Aldridge town centre has signed up to take part in Europe's largest horticultural competition, Britain in Bloom.
Aldridge entered the regional Heart of England in Bloom competition, urban community category, and if successful could be entered into the main Britain in Bloom event. The competition annually attracts over 1,350 entries from small villages to large cities.
Walsall Council's District Centre Management Team is co-ordinating the entry, supported by the Town centre business partnerships. Judging will be around three main categories which are horticultural achievement, environmental awareness and community involvement.
Residents are also being urged to play their part by adding their favourite photos of the area to Flickr by following the link http://www.flickr.com/groups/wda-in-bloom/. Areas featured can cover everything from the local park to a residential street but should illustrate why residents and the wider community should feel proud about the area.
The winning picture in each area, as judged by members of the business partnerships, will receive a £20 voucher for a photographic shop and the most popular images of each district will be displayed locally. The deadline for entries is Friday 18 June.
Councillor Adrian Andrew, Walsall Council cabinet member for regeneration, said: "This event will give us the opportunity to show off three of our district centres and I'm sure the judges will be impressed by what they see.
"A lot of work takes place throughout the year to keep our district centres looking great and hopefully this competition will give these areas the recognition they deserve."
Councillor Anthony Harris, Walsall Council cabinet member for leisure, culture and environment, said: "This competition is about promoting pride in our communities and striving for excellence.
"It is not simply about floral displays and making the area look great on judging day but about achieving improvements which will benefit these communities year after year." Judging will take place in July.
