Otterford Parish Litter Pick 8

HEADLINES
# 26 Pickers (and 1 Base Team) collected 61 sacks of litter,1 tyre, 2 hubcaps, and miscellaneous items
# After sorting, 691 drinks cans, 509 plastic bottles, 142 glass bottles and jars, and assorted metal were recycled   

A foggy March morning which eventually cleared as we ended the Pick. Twenty six pickers allowed us to clear eight of the nine sub-divisions of the parish – hopefully the remaining one can be picked separately over the next week or so.

In two hours we collected 61 sacks of litter, and a range of other things including two hub caps, one tyre, a tractor wheel inner-tube, a wide range of pieces of car bodywork, odds and ends of scrap metal, and miscellaneous other litter.  

As ever, a substantial amount of litter came from food wrappings - the largest single amount was again from McDonalds  – but we also had wrappers and cups/bottles from Burger King, KFC, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Asda, Aldi, Waitrose, Pepsi Cola, Costa Coffee, Greigs, Café Nero, and Marks & Spencer.    

After sorting as much as possible was recycled. From this Pick we recycled 691 drinks cans, 509 plastic bottles, 142 glass bottles and jars, and assorted metal.
