Volunteers clear 90 bags of rubbish

Volunteer litter pickers were in action again last weekend collecting  90 bags of rubbish from woodland adjacent to Moulsecoomb Way.

The event  was organised by dog walkers Lee Juney and Amanda Wright, supported by  council ranger Garry Meyer , from the Tidy Up Team, who provided equipment.

A team of  15 volunteers spent two hours clearing the masses of litter that had built up in the woods.

Rubbish found included car wheels, a car seat, car bonnet, and enough carpet to furnish a small flat!

Volunteers working with the council’s Tidy Up Team have now collected nearly 200 bags of litter from across the city this month.

Future events include Great British Springclean litter picks taking place in green spaces across the city on 3rd/4th March.
