Appleby Litter-Pick - with Broughton!

The Thatched Cottage,9 Paul Lane,APPLEBY,DN15 0AR

08 Apr 2011

23:00

The Appleby Litter-Pickers are meeting up with volunteers from Broughton (who are also registered with Litter Action) to clean the road between the two communities, a heavily littered 3 mile stretch of busy main road. The Appleby Group have equipment for 10 volunteers. If you wish to join us and help make a difference, please contact Anita (735439) to book your litter-stick, bag hoop and high vis jacket. I estimate we will fill 100 sacks! We will need at least 8 volunteers to complete the road in one session. Meet at 11am at the Appleby Woods entrance. When the safety issues have been discussed and equipment dished out, we will probably split into 2 groups with some of us starting at Appleby Woods and some starting near Broughton Cemetery, and meeting somewhere in the middle! These are outline arrangements subject to confirmation nearer the time.

50 sacks of litter, 16 tyres and a complete bumper in a short half mile stretch from Broughton through the woods today! Thanks to Cath, Tim, Ian . . . and me! That bit of road looks beautiful now!.

Middlewich Clean Team
The Middlewich Clean Team was set up with the basic intention of keeping our town litter free. However we now do much more as we have an education programme working in all of our schools and pre-school groups and have carried out a number of environmental projects. We have a small committee and well over 100 members. Litter picking is undertaken by all members, either by joining a group litter pick or simply by keeping an area litter free. We have also worked with Government Departments on controlling ant-social behaviour and very recently, several of our members qualified as Community Crime Fighters and have been involved in the restorative justice system. We help set up other Clean Teams nationally and are the Mother Clean Team to some of the other organisations included on this site.

Otterford Parish Litter Pick
Otterford Parish Litter Pick aims to remove as much litter (and fly-tipped items) as possible from the roads and lanes in the parish - which is located in the beautiful Blackdown Hills AONB on the Somerset/Devon border. We now hold three Litter Picks annually - in March, July and November. After sorting,as much litter as possible is recycled: to date we have recycled 7,446 drinks cans, 6,041 plastic bottles, 1,216 glass bottles/jars, and lots of miscellaneous metal. Since our 17th Pick in March 2020 we have also been recycling plastic food containers and lids, paper and cardboard, and aluminium foil. We are grateful to Whitbread Plc (from when they owned Costa Coffee) and Litteraction for donating equipment and clothing: to Somerset West & Taunton District Council (and their contractor idVerde) for providing litter sacks for each Pick and now collecting the rubbish afterwards; and to Somerset Waste Partnership for donating vests, gloves and sacks.
