Video captures bumper litter hall by community group

A video has been released of a litter blitz that saw 30 volunteers collect a bumper 85 bags of waste at a Black County beauty spot.

The monster haul was collected by four groups who came together to help combat the litter blight at Saltwells Nature Reserve around the Bath Road entrance. Cllr Chris Barnett, who chairs the new group, said:

"I cannot thank members of the four groups and residents enough. That corner of Saltwells has suffered from litter for years and it was such an amazing sight to see people who really care about the place give up their time to get to work.

“This shows very clearly how things can change when people come together to do their bit.”

The video shows volunteers in action and shows a shopping trolley and waste among the haul. The four groups which took part in the clean-up included Clean and Green Saltwells, Tidy Stourbridge, The Conservation Volunteers and Friends of Saltwells. Dudley Council countryside staff also lent a hand. Waste collected was taken away by Dudley Council staff.

People who love the Saltwells site have been urged to join the Saltwells Clean and Green Facebook group and look out for updates of litter picks they can help with. The group aim to meet at weekends and work in tandem with midweek litter-picks that are organised by Dudley Council rangers who look after the site.

Saltwells Nature Reserve is one of the largest urban nature reserves in the UK and is the own of ancient bluebells, 16 species of dragon flies and an array of woodland birds
