Monthly clean up of the riverbank

Yesterday, I joined a group of volunteers from the Friends of the River Kelvin to take part in a monthly clean up along the riverbank. Over the course of an hour and a half, I gathered three bags of rubbish from areas within Kelvingrove Park. Empty and broken bottles were the most common item that I found dumped next to the river.

View of the riverbank cleared of rubbish.

Broken glass left on the riverbank.

I was very concerned to find broken glass and plastic bags within the riverbank. These items could seriously injury wildlife moving through the area. It is essential that any packaging and broken glass is disposed of quickly and safely by wrapping it thickly in newspaper before putting it in a bin.
