Litter on the B6278

A dozen volunteers turned up this morning to collect litter and rubbish from the country lanes in Northumberland. During the 2 hour operation a van and trailer load of litter, tyres, car crash parts, building materials, a dvd player, radio, computer disk drive and two plastic doll arms were collected.

Between Shotley Bridge and The Snods on the B6278, known locally as Burnmill Bank, we filled 12 bags with litter. Most of this being food and drink containers that had been discarded from vehicles over the last 12 months. That’s a bag of litter per month, on average, thrown away by people who just want to keep their vehicles clean but have no respect for the countryside.
