    Really impressed with your stamina Rusty.  I still go out for walks but only pick litter probably 1-in-5 of those as there’s so little around here.  I play golf once in a while and pick litter up as I go but that’s a little less benevolent than your motives  🙂

    Out for a walk near my sister’s today. Found two full 1 litre N2O cartridges partially concealed in undergrowth. What do I do with them (other than get off my tits)?

    Get off your tits and go wild with spray cream?

    It’s finally stopped raining!

    Today’s highlights include a builders blown away bag dragged to the nearest litter bin and a few flashing led disposable vapes in an otherwise boring early morning doggo walk!

    let’s get trolley’d!

    Spotted this supermarket trolley about a mile from Aldi thrown down a gulley and starting to be claimed by nature.

    Dragged it out with a few brambles and greenery attached. Met up with its errant M&S mate on the way back and got ourselves a convoy!

    Cleaned it up and shoved it back in the queue – surprisingly there wasn’t a pound coin in it😔

    We’re back in action!

    Once more unencumbered by winter gloves and not needing the illumination of a torch Bert and I are litter picking again.

    2 bags to start off with.

    lighten up!

    It’s suddenly lots lighter at 6o’clock. You can now see the bagged shit that fellow dog walkers have thrown in the bushes over the darker winter months.

    Twinned!

    I wonder if someone in Bocholt has been out with their doggo this morning and collected a bag of litter?

    I don’t go out of my way to pick up litter, I just pick up stuff and take it home or drop it in an empty bin. I’m very impressed with your efforts RNP. I take it home though, our non-recycling bin is rarely full and most litter goes in the recycling bin.

    I’m very impressed with your efforts RNP.

    I’m out with the dog every morning in our local area. It’s literally no bother for me to lunge at litter whilst walking past with Bert. I wish more dog owners did it.

    I take it home though, our non-recycling bin is rarely full and most litter goes in the recycling bin.

    I’m conscious that I’m picking up recyclable materials but unfortunately I don’t have the capacity to segregate. Fellow Civic Pride litter pickers do separate their litter pick streams but they are retired and have more time on their hands.

    I’m stumped as to where all this litter keeps coming from!

    “Lights out! Guerilla gardening, turn that shit up”

    Xmas decoration plant rescued from somewhere at the time, shown for scale next to Berts leg. Planted in the guerilla garden this morning. Last year’s chrimbo decoration trees are doing well but lost a few to deer nibbles.

    why as a dog owner do I pick up litter?

    To make up for dog owning **** like this.

    Tenuous link but today’s detritus-du-jour is rubber bands. I must be following a postman who isn’t interested in making a giant elastic band ball🤷‍♂️

    Out walking with Bert in one of his favourite parks and noticed that lots of horse chestnuts have started germination/growing. Unfortunately they were in an area that’s mowed so they wouldn’t survive.
    Collected and planted them in my guerilla garden tonight. If only 0.1% of all the acorns/conkers/wild seeds that I’ve picked up grow then it’s going to be an awesome forest one day!

    4x more Red bull than Monster Roadman this morning!

    …….and with that fascinating fact that’s it. I think this thread is done – it just feels like an echo chamber in here. I guess everyone has seen it by now and anyone who would be inspired has done so.
    I’m not a social media influencer and there’s only so many ways you can make a photo of a bin bag vaguely interesting.

    I might do a weekly/monthly bump through the summer but I think daily is done.

    Toad🤣👍. I often peep at your thread, and yes, you have inspired me. No dog, but I do regular pick-ups. Chappeau.

    Weekly update.

    Started off annoyingly – nice Sunday evening walk over Holcombe moor/Peel tower and some McScroat has left a McCup on the ground. **** take it home🤬

    Another evening walk and fly tipping under a roadbridge. Of course there’s a Monster can present. I only associate Monster with utter **** nowadays as discarded Monster cans are omnipresent. Sorry to anyone who actually enjoys it but 🤷‍♂️

    On a positive note – spring time love is in the air. To anyone who has followed this thread for awhile – Millie’s affection to Bert used to be unrequited. However over winter Mille has matured from a puppy to a lady dog and Bert is now interested…….very interested!

    5bags of litter collected and left at various council collected bins along with other Civic Pride members bags.
