Another excellent pick today with some decent weather as well. The 9 of us didn’t have any trouble finding plenty of fly-tipping and general rubbish including rubbish left after a kids Birthday party, builders bags of fly-tipping, 19 black bags of tree cuttings etc etc.
Our team of Helen, Dave C, Dave, Dawn, Pat, Andy, Gary, Colin and Roger collected 16 of our large compactor sacks of rubbish, 4 large builder bags, a large cabinet, supermarket trolley, suitcase, drainage pipes, clothing, 2 spring beds, large sheets of plastic plus rugs and carpets. The photos below show some of the team with this rubbish which we left in 2 piles for the Council to pick-up. All-in-all a very successful pick which the lads from Street Cleansing would be collecting later this afternoon.Junction Rd 2nd pile and Gary.jpgJunction Rd 1st Pile Team.jpg3 - 1 (28).jpg

The Authorities In Lye Are Failing

Posted: November 5, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter

The team went back into Lye for yet another litter pick on Sunday 27th October and were simply overwhelmed with rubbish and fly tipping yet again.

All Authority and respect for ones community is failing here for the few and it’s dragging the village down for the many.

Brompton Drive Clean Up

Posted: October 21, 2019 by tidystourbridge in Litter
Another excellent litter pick today where the team including 6 residents from around Brompton Drive did a great job finding a considerable amount of rubbish from around this green space. On the face of it as you look across the fields and trees of this very pleasant green space it looks very well kept and not in need of a litter pick. However when you start looking around the edges of the trees, footpaths and inside the clusters of trees there was plenty of rubbish to be found. 
 
The volunteers did a brilliant job getting all the litter out of those areas as you can see in the photos below – collecting 12 of our large compactor sacks of rubbish. The team today was; Rachael, Dave, Doug, Dawn, Curtis, Ellen, Jeremy, Aidan, Roger and local residents Rachael, Findley, Vince, Sam, Jamie and 7 year old Meia.
