Whiteways litter pick Story by Patrick Moran

Whiteways Community group is finding ways to continue the work that they do within the new rules. Members of Whiteways Community Group organised a litter pick on Saturday 26th September around the Whiteways, Earl Marshall and Birchlands gardens area.

Usha Blackham organised the litter pick making sure that everyone worked in small groups so as not to break social distancing rules. A very large amount of rubbish was collected including from the pond and land close to Birchlands and Oasis Firvale, where there has been a lot of fly tipping as well as litter.

Larger fly tipped items were reported to the Council through the ‘Fix My Street’ app. The streets looked much better and new connections were made between people in the area who have a positive outlook and a can do attitude.

The impressive amount of waste was left outside the ACT centre for collection by Amey.
