Clearing litter on the railway

We have finally managed to get behind the railway fencing to clear the litter which has accumulated there over the years. You would be forgiven for thinking that this was with the help of Network Rail but sadly no. It was with the help of Sustrans the path network charity and a very clever 6ft litter picker! We have spent hours trying to negotiate with Network Rail over the last four years but they are unable to organise themselves effectively to communicate and support communities. However, Sustrans stepped in to help and as a result we cleared five 110 litre bags of litter yesterday. Everything from a car battery and mobile phone to the usual plastic and glass bottles. Next stop is Clean up Europe weekend and the beach clean on Saturday at 3pm.
