Rubbish galore collected by Foyle Hill Walking Group

first_imgThe beautiful coastal stretch between Moville and Greencastle was subject to a deep clean last weekend where members and friends of the Foyle Hill Walking Group collected 23 bags of rubbish.Clean up organiser Avril McAlister from the Foyle Hill Walking Group explained “our team of community volunteers collected a surprisingly large collection of various rubbish, everything from underpants, a stiletto heel, tyres, a carpet, a boot in good condition, numerous fresh coffee potlets, plastic and glass bottles galore, q tips plastic bits and wipes and so on.”23 bags were left for collection by Donegal County Council and Avril thanked Pearse McCrory, Litter Warden for his support and for providing litter pickers, bags, gloves and high visibility vests. She also acknowledged the great work been done in Moville. “Moville Tidy towns keep the path clear through the year, without their work this path would have been much worse but litter picking is a never ending task and the hard work of our members has played an important part”.“We were amazed and disappointed at the amount of small bits of plastic and polystyrene we picked up, all a danger to marine life around our coasts.“We can hold on to our ‘picker uppers’ and our new resolution is to spend a few minutes at the end of each walk picking up littler around where we park cars. Every small bit helps throughout the year,” said Avril. Pearse McCrory, Litter Warden with Donegal County Council thanked all of those who contributed.  “We really appreciate the work that has been done by Avril and the Foyle Hill Walking Group.  Every piece of litter that is picked up helps in the long run.”“We are delighted with the work done by community groups around the peninsula over the last two months.  We have a very busy summer season coming up in Inishowen with the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open only a few weeks away and the support we have received from Tidy Towns groups and other groups and organisations has been outstanding. “Anyone who would like to organise a clean-up can simply call the Council on 074 91 53900 or email info@donegalcoco.ie. They will provide litter pickers, bags, gloves and high visibility vests and arrange for the collection of the rubbish once it is bagged.Rubbish galore collected by Foyle Hill Walking Group was last modified: May 24th, 2018 by Chris CannonShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Foyle Hill Walking groupGreencastlemovillerubbish collectionlast_img read more
