In addition to the usual haul of cans, plastic bottles, sandwich wrappers, crisp packets and the like, they collected: 

  • three stainless steel ‘Thermos-type’ flasks;
  • a car exhaust silencer;
  • 36 glass bottles (35 of which were alcohol);
  • a vehicle windscreen surround;
  • a large piece of laminate flooring;
  • a 10 litre white plastic container;
  • two dozen Helium cartridges;
  • a caravan jack and a mug. 

Unfortunately the rain on day two of the litter pick forced the team to abandon their efforts for the day, but they hope to continue with regular litter picks.
