A Deal Litter diary - #17 - 5th February 2021

Can I walk to my friend's house WITHOUT litter picking on the way?


It's a collection route I don't ever frequent so I prepare for the worst. 

Halfway to my chums, I have to halt the pick - the bag is so heavy I'm struggling to carry it. 

I am granted permission to empty & photo on my friend's driveway, then I manage to stuff the dirty, smelly mass of muck in the litter bin at the top of Middle Deal Rd. 

Experience tells me most of the load had been blown from bins, for months, & ignored. 

Why can't I turn a blind eye as easily as others apparently do?

A Deal Litter Diary #16 - 26th January 2021

Today, the coldness & rain really do force me to cling to home territory. But no matter - there's still plenty to pick!

It's Tuesday, & there is a suspicious amount of "clean" litter. Recently dropped? By whom? We're in lockdown - there's been hardly anyone around, & the weather's keeping wanderers at home too. I picked these streets no longer than a week ago.... What has happened in the meantime?

I work it out. Can you?
