Forgotten Rat Run

Posted: February 7, 2023 by tidystourbridge in Litter

Thanks to our absolutely brilliant team of 16 on Sunday 5th February as we completed one of our biggest litter picks we’ve ever done in Two Woods Lane Brierley Hill

The team of Dawn, Dave, Doug, Martin, Tony, Ivor, Helen, John, Jas, Stuart, Chris, Jan H, Jan S (Henry her dog) and Roger plus new members Linda & Val did a magnificent job collecting over 40 bags of rubbish.

The team collected a garden parasol, 4 shopping trolleys, springs from a mattress, a traffic cone, flat screen TV, fridge, car parts, 2 complete sets of car keys, loads of plastic and metal and 4 trailer loads of rubbish from the back of the Home Sense car park.

Also in that area we found a drugs den which we will report to the police.

Special thanks to Doug and Martin for collecting the 4 trailer loads

In the photos below we’ve got Jas & Stuart plus a separate photo of Linda, Val, Helen & John and finally one showing, Tony, Martin, Jan H, Chris, Jan S, Henry, Ivor, Dave and Dawn. The rubbish pictures show the extent of our work and what the place was like before we started.

We’ll provide a copy of this report to the firms around this area and hope they at least have a word with their own staff and maybe have a look at some of the areas around their premises.

Next Litter Pick – 19th Feb – Oakfield Road, Wollescote (start from pull-in by Wychbury Medical Centre, 121 Oakfiled Road DY9 9DS)

And remainder of our schedule to early April (all starting at 10am) is as follows:-


5 – Dunsley Road, Wollaston/Norton

19 – Thorns Academy, Thorns


2 – Sainsburys, Amblecote
