< >Western Way Clean Up

Not so glorious mud February 2007

Over 20 shopping trolleys, a motorcycle and a wheelbarrow were amongst the tonne and a half of rubbish recovered from the mud and shoreline adjoining the slip-way at Western Way, Pembroke Dock.

The Neptune Army of Rubbish Cleaners (NARC) were joined for the clean up by members of the Pembroke Dock Environment Action Team and the Pembroke Dock Community Web Project.

The clean up was organised as part of the Pride In Our Communities Project, a partnership between Keep Wales Tidy, Pembrokeshire County Council, and Environment Agency Wales, and part-funded by the European Union’s Objective-1 Programme.

The aim of the project is to reduce the amount of fly-tipping in Pembrokeshire, through the engagement of members of the community.

Keep Wales Tidy’s Fly-tipping Officer, Simon Preddy said ‘This type of anti-social behaviour not only has a detrimental effect on the local environment, it also damages the reputation of Pembroke Dock. The hard work of the volunteers yesterday shows that people do care about the quality of Pembroke Dock’s environment, and that these actions will no longer be tolerated.’

For further information on the project in Pembrokeshire, or if you would like to get involved, please contact Simon Preddy on 01646 681949.
