Clean Up chairman IAN KIERNAN says there was a three per cent drop in litter found by an estimated 800-thousand volunteers around the country yesterday.
Mr KIERNAN says more than a third of the seven-thousand-200 tonnes of rubbish collected at over six thousand sites was recyclable drink cans and bottles
Another report suggest that cigarette butts were the most collected item in Canberra. Did anybody really count each item either at the time of collection or by ripping the bags open later on? The overall figure is pleasing, but why we need a fabricated brak-down of the rubbish is beyond me.
