The roadsides are covered in rubbish because some people through bottles etc out of their cars windows instead of taking it home like any normal person would.
I am glad that Shetlanders seem to be well hydrated judging by the amount of plastic water/juice bottles I pick up on a daily basis.
Or because the SIC refuses to do what is done in other parts of the UK, namely employ folk to pick up rubbish outside of the toon. Instead, they try to con people into thinking we should all volunteer for the clean ups. Be far too sensible for anyone doing community service to be lowered to picking up rubbish.
And before you accuse me of being all doom and gloom/SIC bashing, I do think that folk should pick up their own rubbish/take it home with them/place in suitable receptacle.
I agree. Maybe a different thing but I have always been staggered at the amount to stuff washed up on beaches, beyond belief in some places, so glad to get involved in a redd up were I can. Blue Planet - wooble of conscience for our political leaders that might change something regarding plastics in the sea, and hopefully that will continue to filter down to everything we do.
