What a load of Rubbish!
A clearly exasperated Michael Groom reports:
Back in March 2018, I decided to spend a week litter picking in and around the Parish of Sarratt. Two and a half years later the headline numbers are @10,000 cans/bottles/ and take away cups……………
What a truly disappointing result from one small rural area, picked and recycled by a single individual. Please, let’s all do our bit – because it matters!
This month, I’ve attacked the local problem areas with a vengeance. I have collected piles and piles of rubbish, some of which has been removed by 3 Rivers. The worst area is Old House Lane, near to the Encampment., where I have collected 550 cans/bottles over the last 4 days. I have found a disgusting assortment of hundreds of cans/bottles, mattresses, a complete kitchen and no fewer than 7 fridge/freezers in the nearby woods, to either side of the M25 bridge. This a total disgrace and a health hazard, but much more dangerous is the asbestos I also saw there. This has now been removed.
I’ve reported three separate instances of fly tipping – it’s never-ending!
For the greater good, I also litter picked the Grand Union Canal from Hunton Bridge to the lock keeper’s cottage; and reported to the Canal & River Trust the large skip load of rubbish left by the “boaters” This unbelievable mess included everything from a computer monitor to – literally the (stainless steel) kitchen sink.
The entire area is blighted……………………..
“Large Others” Includes:
Washing Machine (2)
Karcher cleaner (3)
Wheel clamps (3)
Gas bottles (4)
Central Heating Radiators (5)
We can all play our part by picking up litter.
Amazing work Michael!!!
