Working outside in the British countryside all day, the team at Wilson’s are very aware of the litter problem in the UK. We see litter strewn along roads, in woodland and in our local parks.
This year, alongside Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean, we decided to get our team involved with litter picking in areas where we were working. We then carried on after the Spring Clean had finished, and continue to organise our own litter picking events now.
So far, in total, the Wilsons team have put in 28 hours of litter picking in the South East of England, and have picked 32 bags of rubbish (plus a few larger items along the way!)
Special thanks to Countrystyle Recycling who helped us to dispose of all the litter.
Among the litter, we found some items extremely common:
Beer/energy drink cans
Empty medication packets
And some were not-so-common:
A single flip flop
A rubber duck
If you want to get involved and clean up your local area, you can volunteer through Keep Britain Tidy, or simply get outside and start picking!
