Four Volunteers braved a shocking volume of litter in one of Cardiff's most beautiful woodlands. In a few hours we collected 34 bags of litter including 18 bags of recycling, a scaffolding pole, a pram, two scooters, and hundreds of Tescos carrier bags. Its probably a good thing that they will cost 7p soon and hopefully people will swap to bags for life. However, there was also masses of food wrappers, VHS tapes(?) and at least 40 dog poo bags (full) which were just thrown into these woods from the adjacent path.
We picked a decent area, but there is still plenty more to do and we plan to tackle the same area again this Friday, hoping to finish this area in support of the Cath Cobb Environmental Group who have done so many good things over the years in these woods.
Moreover, we hope to kickstart a wider plan to perform litterpicks on a more regular basis with the various groups and volunteers around St. Mellons.
