Group Pick by Nantwich Litter Group saw 18 volunteers turn out to tidy
an area including The Barony Park, Barony Road and Middlewich Road up to
the A500 roundabout, together with a number of adjoining smaller roads, the path
behind Sainsbury's garage and down
Beam Heath Way.
The Pick ended with welcome refreshments at the Pillory House
coffee shop in Prince's Court.
The Keep Britain Tidy
charity has warned that the annual cost of keeping the nation's streets
clean could soon exceed £1billion. Litter dropped each year amounts to
around 30 million tonnes. Smoking-related litter (such as cigarette butts, cigarette packets
and lighters) is the most prevalent, followed by
fast food items.
Charity's chief executive, Phil Barton, has said "Enough is enough. It
is time for the Government, businesses and the rest of the population to
make a choice and act on it. Which side of the fence are you on?"
litter costs the taxpayer money!
