Some of the people who cleaned the Riverbank on foot…
It was a family friendly event with many people showing up with their kids:
The usual mix of unusual waste was collected including election posters, car bumpers and unidentified WEEE.
UL’s own UL Kayaking Club also turned up in force to clean the islands and along the riverbank.
At the end of the 2 hour cleanup this much waste was collected! [tonnage will be inserted at a later date once it its known]
