Today 3 volunteers stepped up the help clear some of the litter from the rec behind Harris Avenue in Rumney. We collected 11 bags of rubbish including 5 recycling bags, part of a car radiator and some mysterious heavy plastic boxes.
The biggest problem today was the shredded cans. One of the volunteers, Stephen, said "It was nice to think that by picking up these razor sharp pieces of metal we could have prevented serious injuries to playing children or dogs"
Chris Partridge, Keep Wales Tidy Officer for Cardiff added "These occurrences are entirely preventable if users of the rec used the provided bins or took their litter home with them".
Here is a slideshow of the event.
