Eight volunteers from the Wilmslow Clean Team met at The Parish Hall on Wednesday, 7th February. and spread out to cover The Carrs and the surrounding area.
Some volunteers also went as far as the A34 bypass on the Bollin Link road and drove across to tackle Prestbury Road. Seventeen bags of litter were collected.
On Saturday morning, despite dreadful weather, seven volunteers met in the Honey Bee car park and removed 18 bags of litter from Altrincham Road and part of Morley Green Road.
A spokesperson for the group said "Altrincham Road from the airport tunnels into Wilmslow is notoriously bad for litter. It seems to be getting worse though. It is one of the locations that we visit twice as often as the others – and so our volunteers do a thorough tidy up of this road every 3 months. The amount of litter which had accumulated in the last 3 months was shocking. Either people are littering more or Cheshire East council are cleaning up less. This is something which we can investigate further.
"The whole of this area was really badly littered. It could be down to one individual or perhaps lots of people waiting for their buses. A bin is definitely required at this bus stop. Again, this is something which we can propose to Cheshire East."
Therefore a total haul of 35 bags of rubbish were collected during this months organised litter picks, along with some recyclables. This is in addition to all the solo litter picks that the volunteers do on a regular basis.
