Event 203: Plymouth Great Wood (3 August 2019)

32 volunteers (including 3 local police & community support officers) pulled a truck-load of rubbish out of Plymouth woods on Saturday, 3rd August.

And we were joined by two Cardiff Park Rangers (Raj and Richie), who spent the morning cutting back the vegetation that was threatening to close off the pathway leading from Frank Road down to the woods and riverside.

The mammoth haul included a motorbike, 3 trolleys, 2 sections of iron railings, a car bonnet, and several tyres, plus the usual enormous number of drinks bottles and cans.

Sadly, it also included a lot of fly-tipped general waste, much of it directly behind houses bordering the woods.

In fact, there was so much rubbish that we’re going to  have to arrange a special follow-up event just to clear some of the larger items we found, which were too difficult to move on the day, such as a burnt-out car, two more motorbikes, three huge lorry tyres and a safe (empty).

We’ll be back!
