Litter pickers want plastic-free South Woodford


The South Woodford Society held an autumn litter pick earlier this month.

“Over 20 litter pickers braved the rather inclement weather for a morning of clearing away litter with pickers, hoops and gloves all provided by Redbridge Council and the charity CleanupUK. Along with some junior litter pickers and two canine helpers, we managed to collect the usual selection of cans, plastic bottles and crisp packets,” said a spokesperson.

“The South Woodford Society has decided to take action with the issue of plastic pollution, so please always take your litter home and use refillable water bottles! If you’re not already a member and would like to come along on our next litter pick, or if you have any ideas for a creating a plastic-free South Woodford, please contact us.”
