Rubbish Walking

April has disappeared in a haze of a major project at work and getting a new website/blog up and running at home.  As a result, I haven’t had the opportunity to go on as many rubbish walks as I would like, but Jon has been busy keeping Malmesbury Road clean.  In his all-weather walk today (sun, rain, and hail), he found 2 bags of general rubbish, 4 glass bottles, 15 plastic bottles, and 31 cans … and one or two bits of randomness.

Forget a tempest in a teapot, here’s a hubcap in a hailstorm.

Approximately one mile worth of litter.  Imagine this multiplied across every mile of road in the UK…

If you follow Rubbish Walks on Twitter, use the hashtag #betterthanlitter to highlight the things you’d prefer to see on the side of the road!
