Pick Up Litter

My community is luckily very caring and considerate, so a quick chat in the neighbourhood about this area at the top of my street that was prone to fly tipping, resulted in a group litter picking session. We spent two days picking up litter and clearing the weeds. The council were supportive and provided us with equipment such as gloves and bags, as well as collecting the rubbish the following day. This area was even worse than we first thought! There were numerous cleaning products, house contents, business waste, several estate agent signs, bin bags full of stuff and even 2 mattresses hiding up there! We found crisp packets dating back to 1998!! I've included pictures before, during and after. The local Police Community Support Officer stopped for a chat and even supplied us with a warning sign that fly tippers will be prosecuted.
