Drowning in Litter

The village, the footpaths and the surrounding roads are awash with litter.

This morning (Friday) we note on the Tattenhall News Updates Facebook page that a local resident had to take her dog to the vet because the dog had swallowed a face mask.

Also this morning and on a 6kms walk from Burwardsley Road, across to Dark Lane, down Carrs Lane and back along Burwardsley Road – we personally moved the following to the edge of the road in the hope that community-minded individuals might litter pick in those locations when they are out walking – it would have been impossible to individually collect all of this on such a walk. By placing it at the verge, we were hoping to shame individuals into action. The litter comprised:

  • Energy Drink Cans/Bottles
  • Soft Drinks Bottles – plastic
  • Empty Glass Bottles – Gin, Cider, Wine, Peroni and a host of Tonic Water Cans
  • McDonald's cartons – drink and food
  • Every type of Lager Can on the market – or so it would seem
  • Food wrappers
  • Triangular Sandwich/Food wrappers
  • Discarded Masks

We know that there have been many stories on Tattenhall Online about recent litter but it really is now a blot on the landscape, is hazardous to animals and potentially creates a health hazard during the pandemic.

Two residents, in particular, regularly pick litter but cannot organise a co-ordinated team litter pick during the current Covid regulations. If, however, you need a litter picker and would like to clear some litter, then the Parish Council has a number of litter pickers that can be borrowed for general use.
