|Scrap metal merchants!|
During the event, 16 bags rubbish of rubbish were collected, along with 4 bikes, two cones, a lawn mower, a huge orange plastic pipe, two broken trolleys, 2 lengths of plastic road barrier and a considerable amount of scrap metal including a 5ft * 4ft steel door!
Unfortunately, after the end of the litter pick, two of the bags of rubbish were thrown back in the river. Luckily, Richard Weaver from Keep Wales Tidy spotted the bags and was able to recover them on Monday morning to stop them from drifting down the Taff.

Group Treasurer, Dave King said, “It was great that 22 Cardiff residents gave up a glorious hot and sunny Sunday morning to yet again improve the quality of the environment we live in. With the river so low the opportunity was taken to tackle larger items out of the river and with colleagues from Friends of Bute Park to tackle invasive Himalayan Balsam. A really good effort”.
All waste was collected by Cardiff Council Parks Services.
