In response to the increased litter levels as lock-down rules start to be lifted, some of you have told us that you are ready to start litter-picking again. We also know that many of you are still not comfortable to litter-pick again yet. We do not in any way want to make anyone feel as though they should be back out there if they are not ready. However, we DO want to support anyone who is choosing to litter-pick right now. You can now meet outside in a group of up to 30 people. Please see the Government guidelines for further details https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
I am retired and collect litter as an individual. I collect litter every morning when I am at home, weather permitting. I deal with about 1km of roads, pavements and open spaces near to where I live, (Herbert Road, Bolton Road, Arthur Street, Regent Park Road), collecting an average of around 14 bags a week. I report fly tipping whenever it occurs and liaise with the local authority Waste Management Team. The photos show the general area that I look after. People find it hard to believe that these streets are in Small Heath given the area is not known for its cleanliness! In the first year I have collected 541 bags. The quantity does seem to be getting a bit less, so letâ€™s hope local people are starting to enjoy living in a more litter free environment.
