Since the Summer of 2020 RiverCare and BeachCare groups have been doing something simple which has given us a BIG insight into litter across the region... Each time they have been heading out to litter pick, they have been counting bottles and cans as they go. They've also been reporting the time they've spent clearing litter pollution from their local communities, and letting us know what other things they've picked up along the way. The information below is from the last 3 months of 2020, and you can see that even whilst sticking to strict covid-safe measures, groups have made a fantastic impact. This is due to all the dedicated people going out on their own or in family bubbles to continue to do something positive for their environment. Thanks to all of those who are recording their data on Collect&Count - and if you haven't tried it yet, it is very simple and we'd encourage you to give it a go - get in touch to find out more.
