Otterford Parish Litter Pick 15

Our Summer Pick. Always a quieter day because of absences on holiday etc, so we were delighted when 19 pickers (plus a base team of 2) turned up. For once the weather was just ‘normal’ - no snow, no rain, no biting winds, no hot sun – perfect for litter picking.

With slightly smaller numbers we picked in six of the ten areas of the parish. A total of 18 (very full) sacks were collected, plus 7 tyres, assorted plastic from cars, three traffic cones and (as ever) a hubcap. We saw a substantial reduction in the number of plastic milk cartons collected – just 7 this time compared to 34 in March. We are aware that rampant roadside vegetation is hiding a lot of litter ready for our next Pick!

Three awards this time – one Blue Hub Cap (and chocolates) for completing 10 Picks, and the very first two Blue Macky ‘D’ Cups (and, of course, chocolates) for completing all 15 Picks to date.

After sorting we recycled 154 drinks cans, 101 plastic bottles, 16 glass bottles/jars, and miscellaneous metal
