Warfield Parish Council holds an annual community litter pick, in partnership with Warfield Environment Group, to help keep the Parish clean.
In 2016 we collected:
- 40 sacks of rubbish, including recyclables, and
- Microwave, garden table, car steering wheel, headrest, bumper and tyre, skateboard, child’s bike, advertising board, cone and a garden hose!
In 2015 we collected:
- 17 sacks of rubbish,
- 9 sacks of recyclable materials (plastic bottles and cans),
- 1 trolley-full of glass bottles, and
- 2 hub caps, 1 estate agent’s board, and a Christmas tree!
