Mill Race Lane Yet Again!

Posted: October 13, 2021 by tidystourbridge in Litter

10 volunteers collected 16 bags of rubbish, a shopping trolley with the front wheels missing, 2 large sofa cushions, part of a road works barrier sign, part of a pallet and a heavy piece of unidentifiable plastic. So it was another great job by the team and especially the 3 new volunteers.

We took the opportunity again to mention to Chilly Kiddy’s it would be great if they could put a litter bin outside their building for their customers to put their litter in instead of leaving it in their car park or stuffed behind the green telecoms box. Also as we were leaving a young lady who worked (but just visiting that morning) for the new landlords of site stopped to thank us for our work and explained as new landlords they were only just getting to know the site.

Dave showed her the very over grown path that leads from Mill Race Lane and runs up the back of McDonald’s to Birmingham Street and she took some photos of it. Earlier part of the team had battled up that path and retrieved a lot of rubbish. 

Next up… Sunday Oct 24th Peartree Lane (Crackley Way) DY2 0UW
