Litter Picking Summary 4th->7th November 2015

wilmslow_clean_team_drawing_nov_15_litter_pickOnly 3 volunteers were available for the first of our 2 scheduled November litter picks on Wednesday 4th.  We met in Bank Square and covered various roads in the area including, Grove Street, Altrincham Road, Parkway, Sainsbury’s Car Park, Alderley Road, Albert Road, Victoria Road, Kennerley’s Lane and Hawthorn Avenue.  We collected 4 bags altogether.

We also did a short section down Morley Green Road.  Altrincham Road is the litter picker’s gift that keeps on giving – it is always really dirty down there despite it being scheduled in for a Clean Team pick 4 times a year.  We think that most of the litter must be being discarded from vehicles.
