June Bank Holiday’s Litter Pick-Up

June Bank Holiday’s litter pick-up, and still no improvement in the cigarette butts hitting the streets and pavements of Millstreet. What a pity that so many people are working hard to gain the extra points to put us into the silver medal category. Wake up people, stretch those arms to reach a bin or butt bin instead of dropping on the ground.

Thanks for the extra help for the litter pick up last week. It’s not nice picking up other people’s litter but this group didn’t complain and worked away with a smile. Thanks, we may see a silver medal this September after all.

It’s bad enough to see household rubbish in our street bins but this rubbish is recyclable…. :  [read more …] “June Bank Holiday’s Litter Pick-Up”
