The Plastic Free Letchworth team were out for their first litter pick of the year on Sunday, cleaning up an area of the Greenway where it borders the town’s industrial estate. Glyn Holt, who was there with his daughter Ffion told us, “it was great to have other families helping out on what was a FRESH frosty morning. During the hour and a half we had no trouble filling ALL the reusable bags that ‘Surfers Against Sewage’ provide to Plastic Free Communities. The area is clearly a popular place for a snack, and we found a range of single-use take away debris that had failed to make it into any of the available litter bins. More random waste items found included a mower, road works barrier and cone, TV case, and garden furniture! The mind boggles how these got here? Local walkers commented on the improvement we had made to the environment, but at the end of our litter pick we are aware that there was still plenty of litter left to clear!”. This year the Plastic Free Litter Picking Team are hoping to link with other groups in the town who engage in litter picking for some joint events, and are keen to hear from these groups. The team would also like to hear local residents thoughts on which areas of the town would most benefit from a community Litter Pick.
