Asda perimeter and Northfield Ave pick 7th pick

Unfortunately my Grand mother died yesterday, so wasn't in the most eager of moods. However, I did get out today and did a pick of the Asda perimeter fence and the Slade brook corridor/path along Northfield Avenue today.  I removed 2 Asda trollies, which were returned to the store.  Despite claims of regular picking, i managed to pick 20KG of litter from between Asda and Lower Street.  This clearly would of been impossible had daily litter patrols been conducted.  The McDonald's manager allowed me to dispose of a split bag, in his refuse bin, which was kind of him.  I did however make sure that he knew that his store was failing in its duty to pick up the litter in the vicinity of his store.  I would estimate that 40% of the bags weight was McDonald's packaging.  Two trolleys are still in the brook, not Asda this time, but due to the person who cuts his trees in to the brook, the same guy that caused the flooding of Northfield Ave a few years back, the trolleys were too embroiled with branches.  The EA was notified, so hopefully they'll get the watercoarse clear and the trolleys will get removed. The day's total was 58KG, taking our total to 493KG so far.
