On Sunday 1 September, members of Barnsley based Naylor Drainage met with volunteers from Waves of Waste and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for a beach clean in Filey.
The two beach cleans started at 11am with a 100 metre audit. Once complete, the volunteers were off- armed with litter pickers and recycled bags.
In total, an impressive 21.75kg of litter was collected within the two hours. Considering most of the waste comprised lightweight items- small pieces of plastic, cigarette butts and foam- 21.75kg adds up to a lot of waste.
The litter picking concluded with some seaside fish and chips – with all containers being disposed of responsibly!
