Quick litter pick on way to work

Did a quick litter pick on the way to work - not stopping for too long or lingering as I was only armed with my gloves and one Sainsbury's Bag For Life. Despite doing a big litter pick last Thursday, filling a great big blue IKEA bag, I noticed some people have been enjoying the canal and enjoying leaving their litter over the weekend. So I decided it's time to fit in a manageable pick without breaking my back lifting the load for the mile that I walk. Among the usual cans, plastic rings that hold the cans, strange empty little cylinders (a smoker's accessory?), I fished out a yellow foam scaffold protector tube from the canal itself. This is the second one I have fished out now and the canal society also fished out a couple the other week when they were out paddling! It has been thrown in from the Cash's Lane Houses, more specifically the nuisance residents who think it's fun to litter straight into the canal - the scaffolding has been up for months with little to no work being done on the building affected. I have reported this littering to the Council with surprise surprise no interest from them! I also fished a plastic bag from the canal and was thanked by a lady on her narrowboat as she passed! They have to deal with so much nasty rubbish ruining their boats as they travel too!
