A38 Clean-up bags a mountain of litter

A massive 762 bags of rubbish were collected in a three night clean-up of verges on the A38 in Amber Valley.

The clean-up takes place once a year and requires a lane of the dual carriageway to be shut during the operation. Because of the volume of litter this year, a further night to complete the clean-up has been scheduled for next month.

A team of 9 Operatives, worked in three separate gangs over the three night operation and the litter they collected included a broad range of material including more than 70 live gun cartridges!

The Council is asking motorists to dispose of litter appropriately and for drivers of commercial vehicles to ensure their loads are properly secured to prevent litter on the scale recently seen.
