Great British Spring Clean Day 14

Great British Spring Clean Day 14

Day 14 of my #GBSpringClean and today I tackled the lay-by at St Mewan dip on the A390 just outside St Austell. All lay-bys are notorious for litter and this was no exception. The tarmac and grass verge was plastered with a variety of debris, again mostly food packaging waste as I expect people park up to eat their takeaways and then just throw it out of the window. MCDonalds and Costa Coffee featured in the #litter today.

However the main story is yet to come. At the field edge of the lay-by is a steep slope and I was absolutely shocked to see the volume of rubbish thrown over the edge into the field below. There was no way I was venturing over to pick it up, it was far too big a job for me! There were car and tractor tyres, cones, builders waste and people had obviously backed a trailer up and fly tipped a mass of household waste. I am hoping Biffa Waste who have a depot just across the road at Tregongeeves may be able to help out James Mustoe ?
