Otterford Parish Litter Pick 10

HEADLINES
# 20 Pickers (and 2 Base Team) collected 43 sacks of litter, 4 hubcaps,1 tyre, and miscellaneous items
# After sorting, we recycled 420 drinks cans, 291 plastic bottles, 65 glass bottles/jars, and assorted metal    

A chilly November start, but to keep us warm we collected 43 sacks over a two hour period.

We picked eight of the nine parish sub-divisions. In addition to the sacks we collected, a considerable range of miscellaneous car parts, a tyre, a crate, a garden trug, several large containers, and (a litter pick wouldn’t be the same without them) four wheel hub covers.   

It almost goes without saying that much of the litter was food wrapping and drinks containers. The most popular food wrappings were (as ever) from McDonalds – but all the usual ‘suspects’ (coffee shops, supermarkets, other fast food outlets) were present. The Coca Cola Group headed both the plastic bottles and drinks cans lists again. Tesco Apple Juice has faded considerably in popularity.

After sorting 420 drinks cans, 291 plastic bottles, 65 glass bottles/jars and miscellaneous metal were recycled.
