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.’
