Little picking

The first of two litter picks today…… massive haul of rubbish again from Shaftsbury and riverbank west side. Sadly lots more sharps found and now safely disposed of in PIP sharps box ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ›ขโ˜ข

Litter pick.

Second litter pick of the day was a request from a gentleman who had reported a vacant tent full of sharps to NNC back in December. PIP were straight onto it today and thankfully we all have strong stomachs!!!!!!

โ˜ข๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’ฉโ˜ข I think this is as bad as it can get !!!!!!! Lots of sharps and items that could be used as offence weapons ๐Ÿ”จโš’โ›

Before and after shots….. warning it’s pretty bad ๐Ÿคฎ
