Upper Icknield Way

Eleven bags of litter collected over a period of 3.5 hours and over a distance of only 300 - 350 metres. Clearly, the intention to work all the way round to Ivinghoe was unrealistic.

It is evident that these verges haven't been cleared for years and with the risk presented by passing traffic a thorough and safe clean up could only be undertaken if the road was closed to traffic and it is unlikely that will ever happen.

Stuff had been there so long that nature was growing around and over it and clearly a lot of litter would have been missed for this reason. Occasionally a crunch revealed a bottle or can underfoot, but then it was often a challenge to remove it.

One driver beeped his horn and gave a thumbs up. If time permits tomorrow, will do some more before the AVDC contractors come to collect the bags of waste.
