Big Spring Clean - March 2015

Durham,DH7 7AG

14 Mar 2015

00:00

Litterpick around the Colliery Road, Bearpark Primary School and play area. Meet at the Primary School at 10.00 a.m. Residents of all ages from Bearpark, along with Councillors from Bearpark Parish Council armed themselves with gloves and rubbish sacks on Saturday 14 March. They collected around 50 sacks of rubbish from along the Colliery Road area of Bearpark, including the play area and local Primary School. Durham County Council provided the equipment for the litterpick which was arranged by Bearpark Parish Council to coincide with the LitterFree Durham Big Spring Clean initiative. The Parish Council often received complaints about littering in the village and the Big Spring Clean was an ideal opportunity to help raise awareness of the problem and take some positive community action.

We were delighted at the turnout and would like to thank everybody involved, especially the younger volunteers, who took real pride in helping make a small part of their village a much cleaner environment. .

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.

Coventry Canal
I am an individual who walks part of the Coventry canal to and from work everyday. I have only been walking along the canal since October 2017 despite being a Coventrian my entire life! It is the city's best kept secret and so peaceful and calm away from crowds and cars. But it makes me angry and sad to see such a beautiful habitat ruined with litter so I started picking litter! I usually pick on my way to/from work in the week but I plan to do more at the weekends and travel further to notoriously messy parts of the canal. If anyone would care to join me to make a difference and tidy up for the animals and all of us to enjoy, please get in touch :) Thank you, Jennysha P.S. There is now a new Canal & River Trust Towpath Taskforce which runs on Thursday mornings - please see CRT website for more info. Give as much or as little time as you can :) Please report any flytipping via: 1) website: fixmystreet.com 2) email: enquiries.westmidlands@canalrivertrust.org.uk

Levenshulme Litter Obliteraters
