Event: Litterpick in Maltings Park Splott, Thurs 9th June, 9-11.30.

Eight police officers and KWT joined forces today to give Maltings Park in Splott a spring clean in preparation for the Open Day here on Saturday. We started bright and early (7.30 am) and superficially it looked very clean. However, patches of dense shrubbery held a secret that required fine detective work. Evidence found at the scene of the crime indicated that some of these may not have been investigated since 1993 (based on a best before date on a can in one patch of shrubs).

The grassed area mainly contained occassional shredded drinks cans and plastic bottles. Altogether in 3 hours, we collected a magnificent 28 bags of rubbish including 14 bags of recycling. We also pulled out a mattress with a similarly unpleasantly stained sheet, a starter motor, a few strangely-shaped pieces of metal and a large cardboard tube.

All in all, it was an extremely successful litterpick which has locked away a great load of rubbish for good.
