The Highland Perthshire litter picking “kit” has been out in force this year, bringing together a number of groups and people. It all started in in the winter with Rannoch Path Group tackling a viewpoint and car park, whilst planting a new wildlife hedge!
March saw Deeds for Needs targeting core known areas within Aberfeldy, which was done again in May with pupils from Breadalbane Academy and teachers doing litter picks all over town and on Core paths. Their efforts alone brought in another 20-30 kg of litter. Deeds for Needs were delighted and pleased to see pupils engaging with the issue. The litterpick has been repeated again by the 17th Perthshire Aberfeldy Cubs in May. Grandtully Primary school have issued litter picking as part of their “homework” and Eco-school project.
In Blair Atholl the community and Estate joined forces to clear the litter in the village and the approaching roads in March.
Many communities continue to do regular litter picks such as Pitlochry Litter picking group and at Strathtay and Grandtully. So if you want to join a group near you, please get in touch.
