Today, we have been working on clearing the brook that links Borrowpit Lake to the River Anker. Just two people worked hard to clear a 30m section of litter and encroaching instream vegetation.
The clean up produced 10 bags of litter, 6 traffic cones, 1 tyre, 1 snowboard and 1 full size punch bag. We estimate between 150-175 glass and plastic bottles and cans were removed from this short section of stream in less than 3 hours.
We received lots of great comments from passers by who told us to “keep up the good work” or “you are doing a great job”. This nice feedback is great motivation.
Thanks again to Tamworth Borough Council Streetscene team who came out to collect all the rubbish.
Take a look at the before and after photos.
