Litter pick was far from a load of rubbish!

Litter pick was far from a load of rubbish!

A Boris Barclay bike was among some of the unusual items picked up when staff from Lambeth Living's housing repairs contractor, Mears, held a litter pick in Lambeth on Thursday (June 20).

The litter pick was carried out as part of the Big Tidy Up campaign, and managed to collect five huge bags of rubbish whilst returning the wandering bike to the local rank.

Repairs contractor Mears holds a tidy-up and litter pick somewhere in Britain every year and chose Lambeth for this year's litter pick to mark recycling week.

11 volunteers from Mears including 3 apprentices joined a representative from Network Waste who kindly provided the litter pick sticks.

The tidy up concentrated on the Cotton Gardens estate and the park behind the neighbourhood office on Kennington Lane.

Caroline Peacock, Mears Lambeth Manager said 'We were delighted to support and participate in recycling week.  Supporting our local community and improving the environment in which they live is an important part of our ethos.'
