The tally of bags today was difficult to make a record of as bags had been covered by other items.

We also had collected from another area of which a record of that will be added later. The location for this opposite Sensall Road where it had been collected.

To be honest we could have  worked for several hours extra – but most of his have other lives to get on with. Fly tipped builders rubbish, bottles, cans, food packaging, sweet wrappers, plastic bottles.

As you can see, a variety of rubbish. We look foreword to the day when litter is no longer a problem. Come on folks, help us out and take your litter to your own bin. ( Not every one is bad I know as we have some wonderful folk in our community.)



This was too much to take back to Brook Crescent so it was collected at this point.
