    Clean Cornwall Week is worth its weight in pasties

    Clean Cornwall, Client PR / No Comments

    Organisers of March’s Clean Cornwall Week are heralding the event as a massive success.

     

    Armies of volunteers mobilised themselves across the county equipped with litter pickers and bags to tidy up neighbourhoods, lanes and beaches.

     

    The impressive pile of rubbish gathered would have stretched to the top of Truro Cathedral twice weighing as much as 11,688 pasties.

     

    Lara Hill, project officer for Clean Cornwall said; “We must thank everybody who gave up their time to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in.

     

    “It just goes to show that when people pull together amazing things can be achieved.”

     

    Stourscombe residents association was amongst the volunteers over the week.

     

    Les Whaley, chairman for the SRA said:” We at the SRA like to keep our green open spaces and footpaths clean as children play in the area.

     

    “Litter seems to be a big problem around the roads, pathways and open

    spaces areas.

     

    “Over the week we collected used nappies, bottles, cans, cans, sweet wrappers, a car wheel and tyre, several broken toys and discarded dog waste bags.”

     

    Les believes that business owners should help shoulder the burden: “A Tax should be put on all fast food outlets in each Town of 5p per item sold.

     

    “This should be passed to the local council to help them clean up.”

     

    Lara Hill added: “Everyone should rightly feel very proud of themselves, it’s a terrific job well done.  Thank you!”

     

    The rubbish collected has now been disposed of properly and recycled where possible.

     

    Volunteers gathered a total of 3.5 tonnes between Saturday March 16 and Saturday March 24 from Bude to Penzance.
