Green Charter

Our in-house grounds maintenance team, Green Charter works to keep public open spaces and communal areas on your estates clean and tidy.

Green Charter is responsible for looking after grass cutting and weeding as well as hedge and shrub trimming across all of our estates. 

Green Charter staff are employed on a seasonal basis with a team of 19 working during the winter and 29 in the summer. Residents will continue to look after their own individual gardens and hedges as part of their tenancy agreement and the council will remain responsible for parks across Tameside.

You can view the grass cut and collect cycle for 2017 below.
