Time: 9.30 - 14.45
The Cardiff Friday Mornings Project had a tough task today. When we arrived, the ground was frozen and this patch of woods was packed full of rubbish. The margins of the wood alongside the north end of Pentwyn Drive were packed full of beer and soft drinks cans and fast food containers.
Slideshow of the event
The woods behind Glyn Eiddew and Marle Close contained larger domestic fly-tipping. One resident said that some fly tipping had just been removed by the council and the first 5 bags we picked up were dumped since then.
Movie of the collected rubbish
Today we had 3 volunteers from LS Healthcare, 3 from Cardiff Rivers Group, Lucy (Tidy Towns Officer from Cardiff CC) and myself. We collected in total 56 bags of rubbish, 2 broken bicycles,2 broken motorised scooters, pink paddling pool, parts of a stripped down car including radiator and a steering block, carpets, 2 traffic cones, green wheelie bin, 3 car batteries, 3 motorbike/scooter batteries, 2 Christmas trees, 1 tree cutting sign, one large highway bollard, child's tricycle, 1 duvet, 3 tyres and a selection of childrens toys.
There is no Cardiff Friday Mornings Project next week as I will be at the St. Mellons forum.
